How long do wait to send thank-you notes for a funeral?


Although a specific time frame for sending thank-you notes after a funeral does not exist, it is appropriate to show appreciation within three weeks following the service. If a person is grieving and not up to the task, a friend or family member may write letters on your behalf.

Thank-you letters or note cards should be sent to people who sent or brought flowers to the funeral service; individuals who made memorial donations or offered financial support to the family; and friends who helped by babysitting, providing food or assisted with transportation during the funeral. A thank-you note should also be forwarded to pallbearers, musicians at the service, and the minister or member of the clergy presiding at the service.
