How much is reasonable for flowers for funeral??
My husband's uncle died over the weekend and his 85 year old mother wants us to send flowers to the funeral home on behalf of her and us and his younger brother. My husband was not close to this uncle, and hasn't seen him for over thirty years. His own mother hasn't talked to him for many years (it was her sister in law's husband). I suggested calling the local florist and sending a $75 arrangement to the funeral home. Brother said, no way. It has to be at least $125. Mother says no way....no more than $50. So what to do? I want to be respectful, but what is reasonable?
