Grandchild in mourning

Dear Queenie,

  When my grandmother died one of my cousins expected all of us cousins to get together and buy an expensive bunch of flowers for the funeral. I went along with it because I didn’t want to cause any hard feelings, but I thought it was a strange request because I thought it was other people who sent flowers to the bereaved family in condolence.

  Queenie, was this correct?—Grandchild in mourning

Dear Grandchild,

  You were both correct. People often send flowers to someone in mourning as condolence, in remembrance of the lost loved one, as you said. However, is it also common for bereaved relatives to arrange for flowers at the funeral.

  And please accept my sympathy for your loss.
