      I'm with you, Karen. I live in Phoenix, Arizona , previously Redondo Beach California, and have never heard of funeral gifts either. Unless the original
      writer meant taking food, or flowers which could be construed as gifts.........?????

      I wouldn't profess to know what goes on in every corner of this vast country. All I can say is this practice of funeral gifts is completely unheard of in NY amongst the numerous faiths that I attend services for.

      On another subject, I am curious of something. I have a photo from my grandmother's brother's funeral procession in Slovakia in the 40s. There is a girl wearing a wedding dress. When I questioned my mother, she quite nonchalantly said that was the girl he was going to marry. I couldn't quite decide if that was sweet or disturbing. I'm curious if this sort of display still goes on.
