Funeral Etiquette--card with flowers?

My husband died last year. We were separated (amicably) for two years. We had 2 children together. I have stayed in touch with his family. My husband's mother died this week. We are sending flowers. Whose names should go on the card? Should it just be me and the 2 children or can their father's name also go on?

If my husband and I were seperated, I would simply put down my name and the childrens. Or, you could simply just put down your last name like "The Smith Family"
Reply:Just you and the kids.





If you put your husbands name on it..that is sorta like shoving it in their face as if you want attention for your husband's death when its not about your husband this time..its about the mother
Reply:Dont be disrespectful and put the new husbands name on the card. if you have to just send a card with the childrens name on it. its just not a good time to stir up old feelings others might have a hard time letting go of.
Reply:Just your name and the 2 children.
Reply:only your name and your childrens name should go on the card.Your husband will give his own.
