Bereavement Thank You for Celebration of Life Guests

Dear _______________,

Thank you for joining our family at my father’s Celebration of Life memorial service. Over the years he touched so many lives in a special way. Thank for attending and sharing heartfelt personal stories of the fun times you had together as teenagers growing up in New York. He would have enjoyed hearing those tales rehashed once again. And I bet he probably wouldn’t have been able to resist embellishing them just a little bit! In my mind’s eye I can see his handsomely rugged wide grin. And I can almost hear his wonderful, deep contagious laugh. Many thanks for the lovely bereavement card and thoughtful memorial plaque with beautiful wording. We’ll place it in our garden next to the koi pond that he loved so much.

Fondly yours,

(Your Name Here)

Dear _______________,

Our family felt blessed that you joined us for my mother’s Celebration of Life memorial luncheon.

Thank you also for providing two industrial-size carafes of coffee from your family’s restaurant. We really appreciated your kindness. Bereavement is a difficult process that we’re trying our best to work through, but our hearts are lighted by your love and friendship. Thank you again for everything.

With sincere gratitude,

Celebration of Life Thank You Card

Dear _______________,

Thank you for reserving the clubhouse community center and making all the arrangements for food and beverage catering for our mother’s Celebration of Life reception. As you know this has been a very heartbreaking time, especially for my father. Having your help with this took a load off our shoulders. It allowed us to spend more time focusing on our dad’s needs and making the necessary arrangements at the funeral home and church. Because of you, Mom’s Celebration of Life gathering was incredibly special. Thank you also for locating appropriate bereavement music for the event and getting permission to use the clubhouse’s new sound system. It’s good friends like you that fill our hearts with gratitude and appreciation. Thanks again for everything.

Love and hugs,

Thank You for Donation of Memorial Bench and Plaque

Dear _______________,

We feel so grateful and honored that you provided the funding for a memorial bench with an engraved plaque for my parents at the city zoo. During their retirement years my parents loved volunteering at the zoo. Although no longer teachers in the classroom, they felt it was important to continue sharing information and knowledge about animals, the environment, and the importance of kindness. This incredible gift will help keep their memory alive. We also appreciate that you placed their memorial bench in front of the elephants, as that was one of their favorite exhibits. Thank you again for your generosity and thoughtfulness.

With gratitude and appreciation,
