The Cost of Death on the Rise

It can be expensive to die, and I am not talking medical bills at the end of life.  The cost to purchase burial items are expensive.  An article written by Michael De Groote in the Deseret News by Michael De Groote dated January 23, 2014 discusses two points.  One point is that cost of burial paraphernalia is increasing with the cost of living.  A second point is surviving family members often make poor funeral purchase decisions during the death crisis.  It is our opinion here at Hughes Estate Group that pre-funeral planning is more likely to keep costs down.  It also allows family members the freedom to grieve properly without dealing with unnecessary money decisions.
