We can discuss funeral arrangements well in advance in person, or via 30-minute Skype teleconference, and we can answer the bulk of your end-of-life planning questions. We believe in and rely on the excellence of the SEC-registered Cooperative Funeral Fund. You can also attend Amy's next "It's Your Funeral" lecture to get a notion of the latest funeral service options--an earth-friendly burial, shrouded burial, witnessed casket entry at cremation, family-decorated casket or home funeral service--whichever of those events and experiences is compatible with your family's wishes and traditions. Paying for a funeral in advance can lock in many costs at today's rates. Ordering a planning guide like this one can also help you articulate your wishes, saving your family members any desperate guesswork at the last minute.


"So live, that when thy summons comes to join the innumerable caravan
that moves to that mysterious realm where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of death,
thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust."
