Re: French Wills

and from Eleanor... You can give somebody «jouissance» of the house- that means they don't actually inherit, but can live there freely until death (or whatever is stipulated in the will). That way, if husband dies first, wife will continue living in house until death, at which point the husband's so...

The service took place at the crematorium so it doesn’t really answer your question, but I think that like in the UK, usually flowers are sent to the undertaker or taken along to the ceremony, certainly not sent to the persons home.
