Funeral flowers are are showing a strong comeback in this difficult economy. The Kevin W. Dougherty Funeral Home Inc., with two locations in the Rochester, N.Y., suburbs, ran a local newspaper advertisements praising sympathy flowers: “As an important component in the funeral industry, flowers are appreciated as a bright and welcome diversion, around which conversation can focus during a time of sorrow. Moreover, when asked to identify the gifts and memorials that helped them most in their time of grief, mourners singled out flowers (and plants) and sympathy cards as the most meaningful. The gift of flowers shows respect for the deceased and loving support for the family, especially when one cannot attend the funeral in person.”
A behavioral research study conducted at Harvard reveals flowers feed compassion and chase away anxiety and worries. Previous behavioral research by Rutgers University also found that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.”
In this age of “In Lieu of” people must realize how important and comforting flowers are and continue to send their family and friends comforting thoughts with the help of flowers. Remember what the experts say!
