El Paso, TX (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
“I often hear people say that they won’t attend a funeral because they don’t know what to expect—or what is expected of them,” says Ben Stewart of SharedSorrows.com . “It’s really too bad when this happens because it keeps the person from being there express their own farewell, pay respects or support the grieving family. With inadequate knowledge, a well-meaning person may attend a funeral and leave feeling they have done or said something foolish. Years ago my Dad sent flowers to the graveside service of his best friend’s Father. He didn’t know that cut flower arrangements are not appropriate for traditional Jewish funerals, so he was kind of embarrassed.”
To reduce the uncertainty and equip extended family and friends with the necessary knowledge and words, SharedSorrows.com has recently introduced an Etiquette and Protocols Section on their site. “You may be wondering what to say—or not say; what to wear; whether to send flowers—or what you are expected to do if you are asked to serve as a pallbearer. In each case, we provide you with just enough information to make sure you will feel comfortable in the situation and to make sure you won’t embarrass yourself or offend a grieving friend,” Stewart added.
