Food sympathy gift basket

So Who's In The Kitchen?

When a tragic death occurs, it often leaves the household in a turmoil. Basic tasks like cleaning and cooking are quickly forgotten by the newly bereaved family. They are just no longer important.

For this reason, it has become traditional to provide ready-to-eat or prepared foods as a gesture of sympathy... to not only help take care of the family, but to feed the horde of guests that invariably fill the house in times of sorrow.

If you can manage it, by all means send over a casserole or a spaghetti dinner with all the trimmings. Take the time to bake up 3 dozen cookies, muffins or brownies. Drop off a Honey Bak'd Ham or smoked turkey breast.

Live 500 miles away? Then you might consider sending a food sympathy gift basket... a caring and useful show of support that is sure to be appreciated. We present below some carefully selected quality gourmet food baskets:

In Their Honor Sympathy Fruit and Gourmet Basket

A fruit and gourmet basket is a thoughtful way to share your condolences.

An experienced local florist will fill a classic basket with assorted fresh fruits that may include pears, apples, oranges, or other available fruits. Fruits will be combined with gourmet items that may include cheese, crackers, or cookies.

Included: Gift card with personal message, quality wicker basket. Hand delivered to your desired location by experienced florists.

A plush teddy bear, balloons, wine, champagne, or chocolates may be added to your order based on availability.
