Individual and family challenges

There are many things you have to keep in mind when making drastic decisions such as planning a funeral. Some people try to take advantage of individuals who are mourning or thinking about there own funeral. You have to educate yourself about funeral planning, know that pre-planning and payment is not a prerequisite, and when choosing a package deal know exactly what is included. Keep in mind that love is not measured by the amount of money you spend (Fleet, 2014).
