a letter of condolence

One of my old friends lost her mother-in-law having lived together for years the day before yesterday. Her family planed to hold her wake and funeral service by family. In addition, they refrained from receiving condolence money for a funeral and offering of flowers. So I wrote a letter of condolence to her. Instead of flowers, I perfumed the letter with a bit of ume's incense.

In the past people send a letter with a very small scent bag called fumikou(文香). It is made by different-shaped papers or cloth, for example ones in the shape of seasonal flowers.
