Consider ohese ohoughts by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC FLORAL TRIBUTES One of the flowers most often associated with funeral services is the lily, which is thought to symbolize the restoration of innocence to the soul of the departed. White lilies, in particular, are prized in this regard for their majesty and purity. While white stargazer lilies represent sympathy, the white calla lilies that commonly appear at Easter services as symbols of resurrection and rebirth are well-known symbols of death. Aside from expressing the idea of life and fertility, white calla lilies also carry the meaning of innocence. On the other hand, yellow calla lilies express gratitude. The depiction of a broken calla lily on an old tombstone is symbolic of a life taken before its time. Sending a floral tribute is an appropriate way of expressing sympathy to the family of the deceased. Flowers express a feeling of life and beauty and offer much comfort to the family. A floral tribute can either be sent to the funeral home or the residence. To learn more about our funeral services, please call or visit our funeral home. Coming together after the loss of a loved one is an essential part of the healing process. Celebrating Lives and Healing Heart.s. QUOTE: "The earth laughs in flowers."
