Funerals and Burials--How do you know you're not getting ripped off?
I have used a discount provider for two family members. If you buy everything at the funeral home you WILL pay way too much. Funeral homes must accept delivery of caskets if you buy them from outside. Did you know that even COSTCO sells caskets? Please check out the following site. It is a company here in Houston that does it. They spend a great deal of time fighting the Texas goverment to keep them from closing up the "loop holes" that allow the consumers to choose. The funeral industry would love to run folks like Chip out of business.
