Funeral Expenses

I don't know where some of you are getting your information about the cost of a funeral today. Having lost my husband two years ago and my mother only 4 months ago, I can attest to the fact that $13,000 is NOT extravagant. I spent over $27,000 on these two funerals, which were very simple. I could have used that money to help raise my child but had no choice. It is a crime that it costs that much to bury a loved one these days, but that's an issue to be taken up with the "perpetual care" industry. I can only hope that those who are so outspoken about this being an extravagant amount do not have to face having to deal with making such arrangements any time soon.
