Who should they be sent to?
Unlike acknowledgment cards, there is no real tradition as to who should and shouldn’t receive one. What would be best is for the family to make a list of people from the family and friends circle of the deceased, from experience some people prefer to order a smaller amount of cards and only give them to close members of the family and friends.
While others prefer to send them out to more extended members of the family and friends.
If the deceased was a member of a sports club or community organization or had a large family or friends group it may be an idea to order a larger amount of cards to make sure everyone gets one. It may also be an idea to keep a couple aside for people who didn’t receive one and might ask for one in the future.
