For some reason this one has me puzzled. The funeral announcement states "memorials preferred to xyz cancer center" It doesn't say "in lieu of flowers", just preferred. Preferred over checks written to the family or preferred over flowers?
This is for my dear old boss. When I sent a fall arrangement to his dad's funeral years ago, he called me to say how much he appreciated them because hardly anyone else sent flowers. So I either do a repeat or..... it is possible that he never wants anyone else to suffer the pain of terminal cancer and hopes that each donation is one step closer to a cure and I honor his name with a donation.
