My daughter in law's mother recently passed. She died penniless and her daughter and my son sure can't afford it. They only had 350.00 and the funeral home quoted them $4,000.00 for a basic cremation. I encouraged him to call around. He did. Memphis cremation services quoted them $800.00 all inclusive. They upgraded the urn, I sent them $500.00 and it was done. I do not need a funeral and all of the trappings. We have a family cemetery but I don't even care for a headstone. Spread my ashes on the farm, read a couple of my favorite scriptures and say a poetic benediction then live.
