What to send in lieu of flowers

While flowers are almost always the perfect way to show your support after someone's loss, sometimes the family requests something in lieu of flowers. This means the family would prefer an alternative contribution, whether they ask for a donation, well-wishes, or nothing at all. Alternatively, you might wish to send something in lieu of flowers on your own. Ultimately, it's up to you how to honor someone's legacy after their death, but you should always be mindful of the family's wishes.
