David reported at the April EVNW meeting funeral services that are available for every budget. For additional information and assistance, please visit http://www.funerals.org/. The Funeral Consumer Alliance can be reached at802-865-8300. Stay away from the package sale as you have the legal right to purchase services separately (i.e., a $1000.00 coffin from Costco). Also discourage was the practice of buying funeral burial plots as people tend to move to other states and/or other parts of the world and don’t necessarily end-up being buried where they bought their plots. Cremation too is now becoming very popular and an acceptable means by most faiths. In short be informed and do what is within your means and best for your individual situation. Lily informed us that funeral services are free for military personnel.
