Mine is that embalming is not necessary if you do a direct cremation.
I'm looking up funeral services. My mom informed me that she will not pay one cent towards her final expenses,and that my sister and I will be responsible for it.
I couldn't get a loan for a pack of gum,much less for thousands of dollars
I found a package for $2250,for transportation of the body,for all the nasty stuff they do to it,and for the cremation within 72 hours of death
Hopefully when she finally kicks it,it's tax time,otherwise we're screwed
The thought of having to save up money for that woman makes me ill.
Getting money from my sister would be like getting blood from a turnip
Everything my mom owns wouldn't fetch $500 if she sold it all.
If my family gives me shit about it,they can just line up and help out then.
My grandma pulled the same shit with her kids,and my aunt ended up emptying out her savings to pay for it all. In the end (with the stone) it was just a hair under 10K

Funerals are very expensive. It's sad that she won't partake in her own planning to help you out. Used to be that you could bury family members on your property. Where I grew up the big old estates all had their own cemeteries for family members. They are all still there 100's of years later.
