1-800Florals has been serving veterans and their families for more than 85 years with beautiful fresh flowers and award-winning flower delivery throughout the USA and Canada.  Browse their Family Funeral Flowers online for casket sprays and family floral tributes, or select from their Sympathy Flowers favorites to send your heartfelt condolences and support.  Then, order online to automatically receive $5 OFF every delivery in the USA and Canada.  A portion of each order will also be donated to charity in support of our fellow veterans.

Keepsake Floral preserves the actual flowers used in sympathy and memorial tributes from the funeral service, pairing them with other memorabilia that you provide. We’ll create a piece of custom, personalized artwork that will become an heirloom enjoyed by friends and family for years to come.

The mission of Project Compassion is to reach the family of every fallen American in uniform since September 11, 2001 for the sole purpose of giving them an opportunity to request an heirloom quality tribute to their hero. 

This is a free service.



Remembering a life lived in a meaningful manner is an important part of funeral etiquette, the funeral process and is critical to the grieving process for everyone. The Forever Wildflowers, the wildflower seeds concept was created to provide families, friends and associates a means to honor a life lived for years to come.
