Do you think it is wrong that people should have pay so much money for a funeral service, often because it makes them look heartless if they don`t?

Yes. Its rediculous how much a funeral costs these days. Its not fair to poor people. They actually have insurance now that will ensure a 'proper' funeral for you so your relatives wont be burdened with the high cost. Unreal. For me, no big service, cremate me and scatter me over the pacific ocean, and thats it. Heck, I bet even that plan isnt cheap. :(

Funeral costs are outrageous. Part of the reason I'll be cremated...

My parents own a funeral home and cemetery. If you buy a cheaper casket or something then no one looks down on you.

Funerals are for the living, not for the dead. They are often part of the grieving process. As for myself, When I die, I don't need a funeral, but my family may need to have one for me. I hope no one holds a funeral so as not to be thought cheap or heartless. Funerals are very expensive.

There are inexpensive funerals, but people pressurize themselves into spending outrageous amounts of money so that they are not perceived as "cheap." All part of the consumer society's way of releiving you of money and keeping you working like a donkey.

I'll build a nice pine box when I get older.

Know a guy who buried his wife in a blanket, in an old cemetery. She would have been pleased at his frugality. It was honorable and gracious.

yes, and what about the people who don't have lots of money and still feel like that??
