Past Funeral Gifts

A reader asked about funeral gifts. Check the comment section on yesterday's post. Here are some gifts we received from other funerals. The green plates were given many years ago when Papa's boss's daughter died. We use them for Japanese or western cakes. They are quite fancy so we use them for special occasions. Each time we use them I or Papa mention her name because the children never knew her. Perhaps it's not a custom. It's something we do.

Big Sister and I use the opera glasses every year when we go to see "The Nutcracker". Nothing is said, but we are reminded of the neighbor's grandmother. She passed away a few years ago and we were given a catalog to select a gift after the funeral. We had presented an envelope of money at the funeral.
