Funerals Give Chance to be Charitable

Here is an interesting article of Times of India. The English is not perfect, but the message is clear. Traditional sending of flowers to comfort a grieving family is giving way to a new trend towards raising funds for a charity.

But Mangalore Chirstians are discovering that the best way to pay tribute to the departed is by alleviating the suffering of others.

Donations in lieu of flowers is also common here in the U.S. If you would prefer charitable donations over flowers, please put that in writing and let your loved ones know. As the article points out, the only people who will not like this idea most likely are flower shop owners.
