i think roses are more of a friendship/love thing...not you just lost a baby.

Peace Lily- An indoor green plant with white blooms, appropriate to send to the family's residence. Be sure to have the florist add a message card, just as you would include with a flower arrangement. The Peace Lily is popular as a sympathy plant, most likely due to it's namesake. Your florist may also be able to suggest another blooming plant.

A peace lily is what my company would send to employees that lost a loved one

When my friend lost her daughter she was so sick of the smell of flowers, they made her gag. Her best gift she said was help..househelp, food, babysitting anything along those lines. Can you maybe arrange something along those lines.

I agree with the other response about a Peace Lily, we have always had at least 2 of those at every funeral that I have gone to.  I am so sorry for your family's loss!

Star gazer or calla lillies are beautiful.  Roses would be ok too.
