Due to the death of a family member we have received many sympathy cards from various acquaintances. Some of the senders are relatively close (e.g., friends and co-workers) while others are not (e.g., eye doctor).
What is the appropriate way to respond to such cards? Do senders expect a Thank You card in return? Is a non-reply considered rude?
