My sweet neighbor recently passed away. She was a very diligent person in having everything ready. She had a prepaid funeral with all the instructions. When she passed her son told me that even with her prepaid funeral they paid $12,000 more to upgrade everything. This isn't what she wanted. They were not prepared to say NO to the pressure to upgrade.
When we had a relative pass they had a prepaid plan. The mortuary gave us every excuse why they could not get the casket that had been paid for. We stood our ground and somehow it magically was there.

There are some great places in town that handle funerals for a lot less than the big boys. They are not hard to find. Don't fall for the pressure tactics.

I don't like to think about the inevitable, since I can't get out alive. I guess I need an escape plan.
