Sympathy arrangements, properly composed, pay tribute to a departed loved one and offer solace to the grieving. There are details to be discussed with a bereaved family, special etiquette to be observed, and a wide choice of designs that make a touching statement of final tribute. Construction and mechanics of funeral baskets, casket sprays, and set pieces associated with a diversity of cultural traditions are emphasized. Prerequisite: Fundamentals of Form
