What to Say

Funeral flowers card message

At such a difficult time of losing a loved one, we find beautiful funeral flowers with an accompanying message goes a long way in helping express your sympathy and grief. This can help with the grieving process; an opportunity to share kind words, remember a fond memory, a chance to say some final words to your loved one.

However, we know that at sadder times in our lives it can be hard to find the right words to say – or there are just too many words to convey. That's why Precious Flowers have put together a few examples and ideas for the funeral card message, that may help you decide the wording you want to send with your farewell flowers.

What to write in a funeral card?

Short and sweet, a favourite quote or poem, your fondest memory, meaningful song lyrics or religious verse – whatever words you choose, the important thing is the sentiment and thought behind them. We have put together some card message examples for you to use or add your own personal touch to:


  • You will be loved and remembered forever
  • In loving memory
  • Till we meet again
  • Forever in our hearts
  • You were my strength in good times and bad
  • Rest in Peace
  • With heartfelt condolences
  • Memories of you will last forever
  • Your memories will never die, your stories are irreplaceable, may you rest in peace
  • God has called back one of his angels you will always be in our hearts.
  • Time may pass and fade away but memories of you will always stay
  • To me you were so special.  Someone good and true.  Never will I forget you.  I thought the world of you.
  • You are the brightest star in the sky
  • You were much loved and will be missed
