“When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. When you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.” Buddhist Saying
The funeral is a time when we remember, respect, and celebrate the life of a family member or loved one who have left us.

Funerals, rites of passages, and funeral flowers are as old civilization itself. Historians can trace the earliest forms of funeral celebration back almost 300,000 years. It is believed that prior to the use of funeral flowers, flower pollen was used to mark the passing of the deceased.
Funerals today amongst most countries, and amongst most cultures are quite similar in structure. Funeral rituals can be divided into three parts:
1. The Visitation
2. The Funeral Itself
3. The Burial Service
Funeral Flowers can be used to properly and tastefully mark each of these parts of the funeral ceremony.
At the visitation stage, (also known as the viewing or the wake), the deceased is placed on display in the funeral casket. The viewing often takes place one or two evenings prior to the funeral.
While Funeral viewings usually take place at the funeral home, It is not an uncommon practice for the funeral viewing to occur at the home of the deceased, or at the home of a relative.
At the funeral viewing, the family of the deceased may choose an assortment of arranged flowers to commemorate their loved ones. Flowers for the funeral viewing can be used in combination with displayed portraits, photographs or other possessions to remember and celebrate the lives lived of our loved ones.
Flowers for funeral viewings are often sent by relatives, friends and acquaintances who are unable to attend the funeral services.
