What to send when there has been a death in the family

It is a very common question that we get asked a lot, so I thought that I would answer it here  . . . . in our blog. 

Traditionally, flowers are the most common gift that is sent when someone dies, but, today there are a lot of other options. Many obituaries in the newspaper indicate where or to what charity a donation can be made.

But of course, we think that sending chicken soup is the best way to warm someone's body and soul, especially when there has been a death in the family.  We send a lot of gifts for funerals and shiva homes . . . we have special pre-written cards that you can choose from.  For example:

With deepest sympathy for your most recent loss.
Chicken soup always helped our family in a time of grief,
hope it gives you some comfort too.

Sympathy 2
With heartfelt sympathy for your devastating loss.
We know chicken soup can't cure the enormous
ache in your heart right now but hope,
at least, it can give you some comfort. 

If you know anyone that has a question what to send, send them to us! and we can recommend the perfect gift.
