Funeral Thank You Notes

Funeral Thank You Notes

Commentary: Hugh Grant, face of a serial killer, provided the funeral.

It's always a good idea to think about writing funeral thank you notes after a funeral. Here are some examples.

"Dear Harvey,
    That funeral was terrific!
Sincerely,
Yours Truly"
"Dearest Madame,
    Thank you for the funeral.
All My Best,
Sergeant Mister"
"To Whom It May Concern:
    Your rent is overdue.

Signed,
Land Lord

P.S.
Great funeral."

As you can see, there is a tremendous amount of variation among even the most typical of funeral thank you notes, which is why it's important to find the most appropriate form of writing for your individual situation.

Joe Black came out with a handy guide back in good 'ol '97, entitled Joe Black Explains Funeral Thank You Notes. His guide was so thorough that it became a national bestseller virtually overnight, and brought him such wealth and adulation that he vowed never to write another, for fear of sealing the "One Hit Wonder" curse. Instead, he opted to quit while he was ahead, and cemented in everybody's mind the possibility that a follow-up of any sort, whether it be a guide, novel, or even screenplay, could have been a smashing success.

Two years later, he wrote the pilot episode to the now hit TV version of the "Speed" movie franchise. Needless to say, Black is a billionaire. Surprisingly enough, he attributes his success not to his own innate talent, but rather to his original funeral thank you note guide, that was found to be so thoroughly helpful and respected as an authority reference.

Today, Joe Black spends his days chasing mortal women and eating peanut butter.
