Funeral Cards – A Lasting memorial card tribute to a loved one
Funeral cards are beautiful reminders of loved ones that have passed on but when the names in the cards belong to total strangers, they also become collectible items. An object lesson. In a used bookstore in Philadelphia, a bookseller paid eight bucks for a small collection of dead people. Of course, used bookshops usually don’t deal in dead bodies. One has to be careful when approaching people wanting to sell these cards. You might get taken for a ride.
If you are selling funeral cards, you should include a few lines or at least a few verses. This allows the mourners to identify the deceased with ease when making the decision to buy a book. Often time, friends and family will hold a wake or a memorial service when the body is present. The funeral cards that are sold are often kept by the attendees of the wake or memorial service.
