Планы его все еще были несколько туманны, но он не подвергался никакому риску, пока у него сохранялись дружественные отношения с обитателями Лиза. Робот мог действовать в качестве посла, в то время как сам он оставался бы в безопасности на корабле. По дороге к Эрли роботу не повстречалось ни одной живой души.
Странно это было -- сидеть в неподвижном космическом корабле, в то время, как его взгляд без малейших усилий с его стороны скользил по знакомой тропе, а в ушах звучал шепот леса. Он все еще не мог полностью отождествить себя с роботом, и поэтому усилия по управлению им еще приходилось затрачивать Почти стемнело, когда он достиг Эрли, маленькие домики которого словно бы плавали в озерцах света.

Notes and tips:
Funeral directors are usually very helpful when the time comes to make arrangements for a loved one. I commend you for wanting to thank your funeral director during this difficult time. Below you will find example thank-you notes to help you get started.
When my mother-in-law died unexpectedly we relied on the funeral director. He helped us with death certificates, cremation process, transportation of the deceased, and filing the obituary with the local newspaper. This is a small list of what funeral directors can do. Read more about funeral directors here.
Another idea for wording examples is to browse funeral home websites that share thank-you notes as testimonials. If you look at the site for the funeral home you use, just be sure that you do not exactly copy someone’s note and then give it to them. It’s possible that they would recognize it as being from their own website!
If you worked with several people, it’s fine to address the note to the staff of the funeral home.
Dear staff of [funeral home name],
Thank you for helping us through the process from beginning to end. We were not prepared for mom’s death. We appreciate all the support from the entire staff. Having food delivered during the long day of calling hours was a fantastic idea. The family was thankful to be able to step away for a bite to eat while taking a break.
The [your last name] family
Dear [Name of funeral director],
Thank you for ensuring all the details of my Aunt [aunt’s name] funeral went smoothly. When she asked me to be her representative upon her passing I was not sure what all that would entail. I was glad for your help with the obituary and obtaining the death certificates.
I want to thank you for all the time you spent with my family. Explaining each step helped us make decisions and feel in control of a very hard situation. Thank you for arranging for [name of deceased] to be taken to the church. Having the funeral at the church she attended for over 50 years was important to the family. Your suggestion to make a DVD with photos worked out very well as family and friends enjoyed viewing it during the calling hours.
Thank you for everything you and your staff did for [deceased name’s] funeral. The room was the perfect size for the funeral and the organist did a great job playing the hymns. Everything went as well as possible given the situation. I appreciate that you were able to organize the pall bearers as that part was too stressful for me to deal with at the time.
We appreciate the kindness of all of the staff during the calling hours and funeral for my grandma. She was a special lady and I am thankful that everything went smoothly. The family appreciated the snacks that were on hand for the calling hours too.
We felt blessed to have you as our funeral director. Thank you for everything you did to make sure that everything went smoothly. We will recommend you to other families when they need a funeral director.
Thank you for being an awesome funeral director! I wasn't aware of how much happened behind the scenes until my dad passed. Your knowledge and expertise helped make the process feel not so overwhelming.

After you make it through the visitation and funeral service for a loved one, your family is still faced with many tasks to complete, including writing thank you notes.
You should send a thank you note to everyone who sent flowers, made memorial donations, brought food, or did other things to help you and your family.
From a funeral etiquette point of view, you do not need to send thank you notes to someone for attending the visitation or funeral/memorial service, or for sending a card; however, you can acknowledge their presence in your thank you note for flowers, memorials, etc.
As you sit down to write thank you notes, you may feel like you don’t have the words to express what you want to say. If you have read my blogs What Should I Say? or Things NOT to say…, you will know that you don’t have to say anything deep or profound; just keep it simple and from your heart.
I would always suggest that you write at least a brief note, even if your thank you notes have a printed saying or acknowledgement in them. It makes for a more personalized and meaningful note. You can also write more if there is a personal connection or story that was shared and you want to acknowledge that in the note. Do what is in your comfort zone.
Below are some ideas to help you see how simple your note can be and you can go from there.
Thank you for your support of our family as we grieve the loss of our mother.
Thank you for the memorial donation to the Alzhiemer’s Association in honor of grandpa Ben. Your tribute to our grandpa is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your friendship and presence at our time of need. It was truly a comfort to our family.
The vase of white lilies you sent was a beautiful tribute to our loving mother.
Thank you for the donation in honor of dad. Your support and friendship has been a comfort to me during this difficult time.
The Hansen-Spear Difference
One way that we help reduce the burden on the families we serve is to make detailed lists of all the flowers and memorial donations that are received. This gives the family an easy to follow list of people that need to be thanked for these tributes.
We also deliver the memorial donations to the organization(s) they were given to so the family is not left with yet another task to complete while they grieve.
