Is it proper to give money for a funeral?

Answer

When a family has lost a loved one, it is difficult to know how to help them during their grief. Many times, a family will ask that donations be made to a charity instead of sending flowers. However, some people feel better giving money directly to the family. It is acceptable and proper to give money, as they can always use it for the funeral costs. If the loved one was ill, the family may also have medical expenses that will need covered. If you feel the family might not feel comfortable accepting it, it can be given in cash in an unsigned card, so they are less likely to try to return it. Some people bring food to the family, instead of money, to help during the days after the funeral.
