• Toffees!

    I have been out today buying six bags of toffees. The young woman in Asda asked me, "does your family love Toffees?" She looked a bit shocked when I said that they were for a funeral I was putting together.

    As folk leave the service we will offer everyone a toffee. Why? well because the person we will be honouring loved them and always offered any visitor one when they left his home. This is such a simple way to remind friends and family of his generosity and maybe to offer them a smile as they leave on this sad day. If they don't like toffees well, they could just keep it in their pocket as a reminder of why they loved him.

    I have also offered people sprigs of lavender from a clients garden.

    Funerals should talk of all the little things that make us who we are.

    What would the "little thing" be at your funeral?

    My family could gather all the shells in our house and offer one to everyone who attends my funeral.

    Simple, inventive acts can make for very special moments at funerals. We don't need to make big statements. Quite often less really is more.
