Read the money-saving secrets funeral directors from across the country aren't taking to the grave with these insider tips for planning a funeral.
This article does make one really good point. Why spend all of the money people do on expensive caskets and vaults when the body will decay no matter what? It is stupid. I would rather have the money go to heirs than be wasted like that for a couple of days of service. The same goes for funeral plots. We purchase all of these expensive markers and monuments for what? After a couple of generations, no one ever comes to see the grave site anymore. My family has 18 plots with a huge monument that at this point, rarely ever gets visited. We have six other plots on the other side of the cemetery of my great-great grandparents that have not been visited in almost 30 years now, since their last living relative died. I know I am a direct descendant of theirs, but I have nothing really to relate to them, so I never visit their graves. IMO, all of this is such a waste of resources.
Me being a Mortician myself, I’m simply disgusted with this article and the lack of knowledge and information that went into it!
