How to Plan a Funeral
I have a question for those of you that have been through this (I've been very lucky and haven't had to actually arrange a funeral yet). My mom is 78 and very healthy but wants to plan her funeral because she's very particular about wanting to be put in a mausoleum (she doesn't want to be below ground). My dad is a lot younger and won't go with her to get anything set up. I want to do this for her and maybe start paying for it because I know my dad doesn't have the money to do it. Where do I start? Does she pick out a funeral home and they have different cemetaries you can choose from or do you pick out a cemetary first? As you can tell, I'm clueless. Also, is it more expensive for a mausoleum crypt than a regular gravesite?
Thanks for any info you have to pass along.
