An American woman visiting Mexico City was killed by a stray bullet as she left a taco restaurant in a wealthy neighborhood. She had just celebrated her first wedding anniversary.

Tatiana Mirutenko, 27, from San Francisco, was with her husband and two friends outside of the restaurant in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood when she was hit during an apparent drive-by shooting on Saturday. Gunmen on a motorcycle were aiming at a bouncer at a nearby bar, Mexican authorities said. The bouncer was wounded.

Photos on Mirutenkos Instagram account show a woman with a vibrant smile who loved dogs, good food with friends and her new husband. On July 1, she posteda photo from her weddinglastsummer. Year 1, she wrote alongside a heart.

A year ago, we were selecting flowers for the wedding, Mirutenkos father, Wasyl Mirutenko, toldABC News. Today we were looking at flowers for the funeral.

I want everyone to remember Tatiana for her smile, her liveliness, her optimism and adventurous spirit, says Tatiana Mirutenkos sister, Roma.

She and their father say Tatiana and her husband were in Mexico City to celebrate their first anniversary.

A year ago at this time, we were selecting flowers for her wedding, and yesterday, we were there selecting flowers for her funeral, says her father, Wasyl Mirutenko.

The couple was traveling with other friends to sample Mexico Citys best restaurants. Mirutenko was shot at a taqueria in an upscale neighborhood over the weekend. Police say the gunmen were aiming for a bouncer inside the restaurant but hit Mirutenko as she was leaving. Her family says she had just told them how safe she felt there.

Weve traveled to Mexico all of our lives. Tania has probably been there at least 30 times.

According to the latest figures from the Mexican Government, 2017 was the nations deadliest year on record with more than 25,000 murders. Earlier this year, the U.S. State Department issued a travel ban to 5 Mexican states–the same warning issued to war-torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia. Popular tourist destinations Ixtapa and Acapulco are in those do not travel zones. The government also warns tourists to exercise increased caution when visiting Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Mexico City.

Tatiana was an investor relations analyst for a San Francisco pharmaceutical firm. She was also a role model to her younger sister, Roma.

To me, she is who I aspire to be as a person, with everything I do, and I dont know what Ill do without her, Roma says.

Mirutenkos funeral will be held Saturday in Chicago, where she grew up. Police in Mexico say they are reviewing surveillance video as they search for the gunmen.

Five Tips for How to Save Money on Sending Funeral Flowers

What kind of funeral flowers should I send?

There are several factors that can help to determine what kind of funeral flower arrangement to send. It can depend upon your relationship to the deceased, what floral tributes the family are ordering, whether you are attending the funeral or not and how much you want to spend on funeral flowers.

Generally the immediate family select Casket Sprays or Shaped Wreath tributes as a family floral tribute to accompany the casket at the funeral or cremation service.

Some families may request a particular theme for funeral flowers for the service. This can be a theme of a particular variety of flower or a color scheme. It is always wise to check with the family, or the funeral home, as to whether any special requests have been made.

Choosing a befitting floral tribute can be quite a daunting task, therefore we have outlined below some of the typical arrangements you can select from. If you need help deciding what floral arrangement to select, or have any questions about sending funeral flowers, you can call our eFlorist toll-free on (800) 317-4807.Funeral SprayFuneral sprays are a popular choice, and are a very versatile floral arrangement. A funeral spray can be either single ended or double ended. Funeral sprays are available in a wide range of designs, sizes and colors.Standing SprayA standing spray is a design that stands upright, typically supported on an easel or lent against the casket. This kind of arrangement ensures the floral arrangement is easily visible during the service.Funeral Flower Baskets & PosiesBaskets and posies are another popular choice. A funeral flower basket is an easy way to ensure that flowers can be easily transported and moved around. This can be especially useful if flowers may be moved from the funeral home, or church, to the graveside; or if the family wishes to take flowers home. If you wish to have the family take the flowers home after the services, a floral basket is in order. The arrangement is tastefully prepared and placed in a wicker basket for this purpose.

A posy is typically a round shaped floral arrangement, which means it can be viewed from every angle. Flowers hand tied are set in water and more suited to be sent to the mourners home. The reason is that there is no guarantee that the flowers will remain upright on the trip to the cemetery.Funeral WreathFuneral wreaths are what many people associate with floral funeral tributes. Funeral wreaths are typically shaped, often circular, but come in many shapes, designs and sizes. . Wreath rings are lovely floral tributes to consider sending. They consist of a mixture of flowers loosely set in a green wreath.Funeral CrossA funeral cross can be a popular choice, especially for a church service or to express personal sentiment. Funeral crosses can be made in a variety of sizes and designs.Heart-shaped WreathFuneral Flowers prepared in an oasis base last longer such as floral arrangements in the shape of a heart. A heart-shaped wreath can be an extremely personal symbolic choice of floral arrangement, connoting love and compassion.Letter or Name TributesLetter or name floral tributes are a very personalized form of funeral flowers. They are often chosen by close family who wish to express their personal loss and feel the use of a name or term such as Mom or Grandma is the most befitting tribute.Cushions and Pillow TributesThe use of a symbolic cushion or pillow as a funeral arrangement helps to indicate a final resting place and connote peace and serenity. Cushion and pillow tributes can be handcrafted in a range of sizes and colors. Pillows or cushions with your choice of flowers can be made up to be placed in the coffin. The name of the deceased can also be added to the pillow for personalization.Casket SprayCasket or Coffin sprays are large arrangements of flowers that are approximately 4 feet long and are elegantly draped on the casket. They can be ordered in colors befitting a male or female as well as a general floral spray mixed with appropriate greens.Memorial ArrangementsArrangements of flowers that can either sit on the floor or a table top, suitable for the viewing, service or can be sent to the relatives home.Dish Gardens and PlantsSelections of green plants and blooming flowers, suitable for both the funeral service or can be sent to the bereaved relatives home.What type of flowers should I choose for funeral flowers?Any type of flowers can be used for funeral flower tributes. However, there are certain flowers that are more popular and more commonly used in floral arrangements. In many countries worldwide, chrysanthemums are traditionally used in funeral floral arrangements. White is the most popular color. However, they are also available in a number of other lovely colors.

One of the reasons white is so popular is that it can be sprayed any color that is desired. Another reason is that white denotes truth and honesty. Double chrysanthemums are also popular since they can be used for pillows, names and massed wreaths very easily.

Roses are a very popular funeral flower because of their striking beauty. Red roses are the most traditional flower used and white, yellow and pink are frequently used as well.

Another traditional funeral flower is the lily. Longiflorum lilies come in white only and the flower head has a trumpet shape. Other types of lilies are also often used in floral arrangements. Carnations are also traditional funeral flowers. Massed in red, they have great visual appeal. However, they are more expensive than chrysanthemums and are consequently not used as often.

Since the type of funeral flowers sent comes from the heart, the decision should reflect your personal feelings for the deceased and you should be satisfied that your choice sends a sincere and appropriate message.The Meaning of different Flower Species for funeral flowers and sympathy flowersThe design, color and history of a flower all contribute to its symbolic meaning. Lilies are associated with peace, Honeysuckle indicates sweetness of disposition, Coreopsis represents cheerfulness, Roses indicate love and Aloe symbolizes wisdom and integrity. Most Florists selection of sympathy flowers is in keeping with choosing blooms that have a peaceful and dignified meaning.How to choose the color of a Sympathy Flower ArrangementChoosing a particular color of a flower or the color palate of a flower arrangement can set the tone of the condolence message you are trying to convey. This is yet another aspect of how flowers may communicate in a way that surpasses words alone.

The delicate stems of White lilies and Roses symbolize peace, and are very commonly associated with funeral flower arrangements. Yellow Roses symbolize remembrance and friendship. Pink Roses can indicate elegance, femininity and grace. The colors in sympathy flowers may also help to signify a story about the life of the deceased. It is quite common for a veteran to be honored with a red, white and blue floral tribute. The family of an Italian immigrant may appreciate a sympathy arrangement in the colors of the Italian flag.

What is the difference between funeral flowers and Sympathy Flowers?This is a commonly asked question. Funeral flowers are the floral tributes that are displayed during the funeral or memorial service. They are typically sent to the funeral home, crematory, church or the location where the funeral service is being conducted.

Sympathy flowers are sent to the recently bereaved to show your condolences and offer solace and compassion at a time of distress. Sympathy flowers are typically sent to the home or workplace of the bereaved. Sympathy flowers can be sent immediately on news of the death, or at any time before or after the funeral.How much do funeral flowers cost?A simple funeral flower or sympathy flower arrangement can be sent for as little as $29.99. The classic peace lily in a basket is the most common affordable sympathy arrangement. Funeral flower baskets and sprays range in price depending upon the size and design of the tribute. Typically you can expect to pay in the region of $50.00 – $80.00 for a decent size floral arrangement. Specialist requests for name floral tributes or shaped wreaths can cost anything upwards of $100.00 and a large casket spray can cost between $250 – $700.Why are funeral flowers so expensive?Floral arrangements grace any occasion, yet the costs of sending fresh flowers these days can be quite expensive. Funeral flowers are generally the core of any florists business and therefore many florists do ensure that their prices are matched accordingly within the market. As the funeral flower market is highly competitive this helps to keep the costs for funeral flowers at a somewhat fixed price. Funeral flowers are an integral part of a funeral service, and important to add some beauty, color and inspiration to a somber event. Yet they can be a huge expense that is very short-lived. This is often why so many families today just ask for charitable donations in lieu of funeral flowers.How can I send inexpensive, or cheaper, funeral flowers?Many people turn to the Internet today to find out how they can save money on sending funeral flowers. As I have just mentioned above, you can select simple inexpensive sympathy flowers, but funeral flowers can end up costing you hundreds of dollars. Still sending funeral flowers can work out cheaper than the costs to travel and attend a funeral.

Most people do want assurances that they are dealing with a reputable flower seller and that their floral tribute will be delivered safely to the funeral home, funeral service location or home of the bereaved. An online flower retailer may often be able to offer a discount on funeral flowers, as they are not operating with the same overheads as a flower retail chain. We have teamed up with BloomsToday, a family-owned American company, who offer affordable funeral flowers with a 25% discount on standard funeral flower prices. Popular choices of beautiful and inexpensive funeral flowers can be ordered simply online from this page or be phoning directly toll-free on (800) 317-4807.

You can often arrange to send funeral flowers directly with the funeral home handling the funeral, but you should check their pricing. Some funeral homes can charge an additional fee for arranging this, or have commission arrangements with a florist.

Remember your love or respect for the deceased should not be measured by how much you can spend on floral tributes! Simple, elegant and graceful sympathy flowers need not put you out of pocket.

These days we are all especially price-conscious. Whether we wish to reduce our expenditure on funeral flowers, or cannot afford the cost of attending a funeral and wish to send some funeral flowers without over-spending, then inexpensively priced funeral floral tributes sent direct to the funeral home are a great solution.Where should funeral flowers be delivered?Funeral Home or MortuaryIn most cases funeral flowers are delivered to the funeral home or mortuary handling the funeral. The funeral director can then ensure that all floral tributes are appropriately displayed and transported together for the funeral service. It can also help that the funeral home will ensure family are aware of all the floral tributes that arrive, and that there is plenty of time to arrange tributes as the family desires.Church, crematory, place of worship or community centerSometimes a funeral or memorial service is held at a church, a separate place of worship or even a community center. These days people are sometimes choosing to personalize a funeral service by holding it at a unique location special to the deceased. However, it can still be preferable to send funeral flowers to the funeral home, to ensure that there is someone to receive the flower delivery and there is no confusion. Sometimes floral tributes sent to a church or another location can be left outside or even be mis-placed or unnoticed until after the service has been held. The funeral home will happily receive and transport funeral flowers to the service.Home of the bereaved or residential addressYou can opt to send funeral flowers direct to the home of the deceased if a funeral procession is to leave from this address. Although bear in mind that again the funeral director will happily receive and transport any floral tributes to the residential address for the funeral service. Sympathy flowers are most often sent directly to the bereaved at home. When sending flowers to a residential address, it is best to make sure that there is going to be someone available to receive the delivery at the designated time.

What kind of funeral flower etiquette do I need to understand?There are numerous questions that people tend to ask about funeral flower etiquette. Flowers are intrinsically associated with showing support and empathy with the family when someone has passed, but there are some things you should consider before selecting a floral arrangement.Deciding what kind of flowers to select for a funeral floral arrangement can require some thought. Different types of flowers can symbolize different sentiments and have different meanings, therefore you do need to bear this in mind.

Any type of flower can be used for funeral tributes but certain types of flowers are either more common, or are specifically used because of their meaning. Typically white lilies and roses connote peace, whereas yellow roses symbolize remembrance and friendship. Pink roses indicate femininity and elegance. The purple cyclamen flower represents resignation and farewell, and orchids are quintessentially associated with beauty and refinement. Gladiolus connotes a strong character, tulips signify caring and white roses signify purity.

Common white flowers, such as carnations, chrysanthemums, lilies and roses, are often popular funeral flower choices as they can be color-sprayed to the color of your choice.

If you have any doubt about what kind of floral tribute is appropriate, you can always check with the family or funeral director.Deciding what kind of floral tribute is most appropriateWhen choosing to send sympathy flowers you must consider whether you wish to send a floral tribute to the funeral, or whether you wish to send a more personal flower arrangement to the home of the bereaved. This choice will determine what type of floral arrangement would be most appropriate to send. Memorial wreaths and standing or casket-top arrangements are only appropriate if being sent directly to the funeral home. Whereas sprays, baskets, potted flowers and plants can bring great comfort when sent to home of the bereaved. Flowers can convey much hope, happiness and remembrance, which is why sending flowers has long been a tradition at times of sorrow.

A gift of flowers is always immensely appreciated, and if you are trying to choose a sympathy flower arrangement the following general guidelines and tips for sending sympathy flowers may assist:Should I still send funeral flowers to a cremation?Yes, funeral flowers are just as important when the family opt for a cremation, especially if a service is being conducted. In some cases the funeral will be conducted just as a traditional funeral, only the deceased will be cremated rather than buried. In other cases a cremation may be conducted and then a memorial service held afterwards with the ashes present. Floral tributes are still welcome to grace a memorial service.

How do I send funeral flowers same-day delivery to a funeral home?Sending flowers same day delivery to a funeral home need not be a difficult task. There is now a wealth of online flower companies across the States that offer same day delivery of funeral flowers. The benefit of using an online flower company are that you can visually choose the right type of funeral arrangement by perusing funeral and sympathy arrangements, and in a hassle-free manner complete your purchase, and arrange for your funeral flowers to be delivered at the time of your choice.

If you are sending flowers to a funeral, it is imperative to ensure your flowers are going to be delivered to the funeral home in a timely fashion. You need to know at what time the funeral is to be held, in order to schedule your flower delivery at least a couple of hours prior to the funeral.

In addition to clearly indicating the time of the funeral, it is also very important to have the correct full details of the funeral home. Most national florists are experienced with the etiquette of sending funeral flowers to a funeral home. Indeed in the case of ordering funeral flowers online, or by telephone, from a reputable florist, it is quite likely that they will use the local florist who is familiar with their local funeral homes.

In fact there are a number of online flower companies that will call you to confirm that your flowers have been successfully delivered to the funeral homejust to give you peace of mind!

Online ordering is a streamlined and robust system for making your same day funeral flower delivery purchase. And if you have any doubts whatsoever about completing your transaction online, you can always telephone through your order. Most flower companies understand the need for personal service when it comes to funeral flower deliveries.

The key to arranging a delivery of funeral flowers is to ensure you select a reputable flower company that has experience in same day funeral flower delivery, and to ensure that you provide ALL relevant information in relation to the funeral. The full address of the funeral home, the full name of the deceased and the exact time of the funeral. This will ensure that sending your funeral flowers will arrive on time, and minimize any worry.

What kind of message is appropriate to send with funeral or sympathy flowers?Deciding what message to write on a card to accompany a funeral tribute can be difficult. The flowers themselves are meant to convey a message of condolence and heartfelt sympathy. It is wise to keep things simple and offer a short message of condolence. What kind of message you write and what terms of endearment you choose, can largely depend upon your relationship with the deceased.

Here are a few sample sympathy messages to give you some ideas:With deepest sympathy

Dear [deceased], May you rest in peace

Dearest [deceased], you will always be in our hearts and minds

My heart is filled with sorrow. Rest in Peace

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad timeYou can, of course, chose to send a longer message if you wish. However, funeral flower messages are generally short and aim to simply convey concern and express sentiment. It is probably better to write more extensively in a sympathy card to send to the family.How soon before the funeral should I order funeral flowers?It is generally advisable to order your funeral flowers at least 24 hours before the funeral, although if you are ordering a more complex floral tribute such as a casket spray or shaped wreath, it would be advisable to order at least 48 hours beforehand. However, it is possible to arrange same-day delivery for funeral flowers.

It is recommended to request that funeral flowers being delivered to the funeral, be delivered to the funeral home or funeral location at least 2 hours before the funeral. This ensures that the funeral director can carefully receive and arrange the floral tributes in preparation for the funeral. When you order funeral flowers make sure the florist knows when the flower arrangements need to be delivered by. If the service is in the morning, make sure they get there, first thing.

If you are ordering sympathy flowers to be sent to the home of the recently bereaved, you have more flexibility on when to have them delivered. Sympathy flowers can be sent as soon as you hear about the death or can be sent on the day of the funeral service itself. Sending sympathy flowers to the relatives home is often done as a mark of respect and to show the family concerned that you are thinking about them at a very difficult time. Sympathy flowers can also be sent after the funeral itself, to let the family know that just because the funeral service has already happened, you are still thinking of them. There are no rules to sending funeral and sympathy flowers, it is always the thought that counts. Just take into consideration that sending sympathy flowers sometime after the funeral can be sometimes be upsetting as it can be a painful reminder of the loss. However, sending flowers on the anniversary of a death can be a way of showing you care and remember.
