    Question custom Christians follow

    Hi

    Someone I know passed away recently.
    Last rites have been performed, and there will
    be a memorial service soon.

    The deceased was a Christian.

    My qn is: is it alright to give a token sum at the memorial service or will the family view it was bad luck since funeral, etc is over already.

    Also - is it alright to give $300?

    Was thinking of $400, but then 4 is supposed to be unlucky?

    thanks guys!

    any amount will do since it's a representation of your sincerity and of coz how well you know the person.

    You can pass the condolence money in a white envelope to them at the service. No problem

    Well, if you are talking about the money which Chinese call 'Bai Jin' they usually give in odd numbers for such occasions. Since they are christians I dun think they will mind whatever that you give lah.... be it odd or even.
