Cards of Thanks

Providing “Cards of Thanks” after the funeral services have been completed are an appreciated way of offering your thanks to those who have been of assistance during your recent loss.

Expressions of thanks can be expressed in a number of different ways.  You may send individual cards to each family, telephone calls, a note in the newspaper or any combination of the above.  Quite often an address or phone number is not available, so the insertion of a thank you notice in the newspaper is used to courteously acknowledge the kindness of those who have been supportive to you during this time.

There are many different ways to word the thank you.  You may wish to view other thank you notes placed into the paper.  Below are the telephone numbers for our local papers.
