Thank You

During the week that we stayed in Calamba, I noticed that when people who paid respect visited my aunt’s wake, my cousin never said thank you to those who had extended their condolences. After a couple of days, we were gathered in the living room talking about the plans on her funeral, 9 days and 40 days, there I came to know that they believe it’s not good to say thank you. The reason? That I don’t know…

So I suggested that they could just send a thank you note after the funeral or on the 9th day, as a token of appreciation to those who have been with us during the whole time. If there were enough funds, I would’ve suggested to give people who had mourned with us some Thank You Gift Baskets along with the thank you notes of course, just to show our big thanks or a simple token of appreciation for spending long nights with us.
