Ladies love flowers, and so would your mum if they were alive, probably with chocolates. You don’t have to refrain from this. Go ahead and get your mum a bunch of flowers, buy a card and in it copy a beautiful modern funeral poem from the Holy Bookshop and dedicate it to her. Your flower selection should be based on her preference.
You probably wondering where you will now take the flower and the card. You can go place it at their final resting place, or somewhere strategic in the house, probably her favourite spot.
This is best done from a place that was dear to her. You will simply take a small piece of paper and write something that you would wish to tell her, or better still select a nice modern funeral poem and write it down, or do both, then tie it to a helium balloon, and release it to the air.
