Funeral food

I'm just about to go downstairs and start a large pan of apple crisp to bring to the house of a friend of Mr. Meatloaf. The lovely man passed away a few hours ago, and my first thought was "What can I cook?" I was raised in a small town and that's just what we did back then in the 50's. When I moved to the city, my friends seemed surprised by the habit. Do you do it? And what do you bring? I range from homemade bread to potato salad to a pot of chicken and rice. And cakes, of course, and now apple crisp.
