Many people consider roses a symbolic gesture of intimate love towards a person. While this remains true of certain colors and varieties, roses can be a great addition to funeral flower arrangements. For instance, white roses evoke feelings of reverence, innocence, humility, and youthfulness. Pink roses stand for love, appreciation, grace, and gentility. Dark red roses express grief and sorrow. Friends of the deceased can give yellow roses to symbolize their loyalty. A single rose in a bouquet symbolizes enduring love for the recently passed.
