Finding out a friend or coworker has recently lost a loved one, whether suddenly or after suffering from a medical condition, is never easy. Not only will you want to personally express your condolences to him or her, but you may also want to show your respect to your friend's family as well.
There are a variety of ways to say "I'm sorry for your loss," ranging from bringing a homemade meal to your friend's home to sending out sympathy cards. In some instances, it may also be deemed appropriate to purchase flowers to send to the funeral home in which a friend's loved one is being honored.
Figuring out what type of flowers to send can be a challenge, especially if you were not particularly close with the fallen person. One way to make an easy and tasteful decision is to send beautiful blue flowers that can provide the space with peace. This gesture may be even more suitable if the recently deceased is a male, as blue tends to be viewed as a more masculine hue.
