The High Cost Of Funerals

....also known as Gouge 'Em One Last Time!

There is a wonderful website chocked full of helpful suggestions about what to do with The Body after death. You have lots of options and there are lots of ways to spend money like drunken sailors on shore leave when it comes to planning the planting!

The man to call to get the skinny on all this is Ken Lambert. Mr. Lambert is not a funeral director. He is simply a very knowledgeable consumer, researcher, coach, and negotiator.

This is what Ken Lambert has to say about his website:

This is an Independent Self-Help & Consumer Coaching Program with more than you ever wanted to know about funerals. It will:

1. Educate You on All Your Funeral Options.

2. Help You Select the Right Funeral Provider for Your Family.

3. Help You Negotiate the Best Prices.

Oh and an aside to MY family: I feel fine! Not to worry! Not planning on going for a long, long time...but if I do go, give this guy a call before you make any "final" decisions. Personally I don't know why Wal-Mart isn't in the biz of body disposal, but maybe by the time I go.... who knows!
