Where do I get flowers for the visitation and funeral?
by Nick J. Hertz

Flowers are an excellent way of showing expressions of sympathy. The funeral home is called upon frequently for floral shop information.

Hertz Funeral Homes in Harvey and McClusky refers almost all floral arrangements to Perfect Petals Flower Shop (formerly J & J Floral) in Harvey.  Perfect Petals website and telephone # 701-324-44262 is accessible on this website's Shops link.

The web is a wonderful tool for researching flowers, but it may not be the best choice when it comes to sending flowers in central North Dakota.  My recommedation is to deal with a Harvey area florist directly and avoid the "Did It Get There? dilemma.  I personally have been very disappointed for the customer on several occasions when a box of flowers shows up having been delivered by a next day delivery service. The flowers have arrived in poor condition, not arranged or cut to length and requiring floral arranging skills my staff nor I possess.  In summary deal with a local florist if at all possible.  In a situation where contact cannot be made with the florist we'll (the local funeral home) take your order and be sure it gets to the visitation and service.  If it is to late to send flowers, a memorial to the deceased's church, cemetery where they are being interred or stated memorial fund is an alternative and may be mailed directly to the family or funeral home.    Thanks for reading this and hope it has been helpful.
