Is a standard pre-printed sympathy acknowledgement card adequate

Resolved Question:

Is a standard pre-printed sympathy acknowledgement card adequate for flowers, food, and cards?

Yes, this type of standard pre-printed sympathy acknowledgement card usually suffices for all expressions of sympathy received. While you are in the mourning period, no one expects more than this recognition and thanks for their flowers, food, and cards with condolences for the family.

If you would like to 'personalize' particular cards for close relatives/friends who went out of their way to help you during this difficult time, it's your choice to add a handwritten note.

I hope this helped, and please accept my sincerest condolences if you lost someone dear to you.
