What to Write on a Funeral Wreath

If you are due to attend a funeral, you’re likely feeling an array of emotions, especially if the funeral is that of a family member or close friend. With all that is going on, it can be difficult to know what to do and what to say. While flowers and funeral wreaths are traditional gifts for funerals, many people struggle when it comes to knowing what to write on a funeral wreath.

There are a number of accepted and conventional messages to send with funeral flowers; some are personal and meaningful, whilst others are more universal in style. From generic messages such as ‘with deepest sympathy’ to messages that are more particular, the following are a handful of messages that can be used at your time of grief.

  • Forever in our thoughts.
  • Thinking of you at this difficult time
  • A light has gone out of our lives, but our happy memories remain
    Gone but always in our hearts
  • Our memories will live on forever
  • We shall miss you dearly with much love and affection
  • Wishing you peace and comfort in this difficult time
