Thank you notes after a funeral are written to all the people who offered support and help at the time of your loss. It is a way to acknowledge the thoughtfulness of the people who were there to help you out or to offer you condolences. Usually, thank you notes should be sent within two to three months of the funeral.
All people who sent you sympathy cards; those who send flowers; attended the wake; participated in the funeral; visited you to offer their condolences; made a donation to a charity to honor the deceased person; and those who brought food.
One single thank you note can be sent to each individual from the entire family. It is always a daunting task to write out these notes, and hence, it is always advisable to share the task of writing among different members of the family. You can also sign it on behalf of the entire family, or get each family member to sign it. The choice is yours.
A thank you note should be addressed to the individual by name, like Dear Andrew or Dear Anne. Then thank the person for something specific, like participating in the funeral, sending flowers or bringing food. You can also pen down what the deceased person used to say about him or her. It should be something positive. If you cannot think of anything, then there is no need to write it. Skip to the next part of the note, which is showing your appreciation for the gesture or action of the person. And, then end the letter with personal closing, like Warm Regards. Make sure you mention your name after the closing.
If you like, you can even add a bereavement verse at the end of the thank you notes. Once again, the choice is yours whether you want to add the verse or not. For people living in the neighborhood, you can get your family members to personally take over the thank you notes. While for others, you can post them at the post office.
