I have heard and read a lot of about this from the people selling each. But the details and fine print get so complicated I end up with a few apples and a few oranges. Has anyone else done the math on this?
Here is something you might want to consider regarding “burial.” Read this article a neighbor of mine wrote on “Natural Funerals” here in Nebraska:
http://nebraskaruralliving.com/blog/rural-living/790-2/ and a wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_burial
Natural funerals can greatly reduce burial costs because friends and/or family can do the work that you have to pay a funeral home to do.
For me, the huge amount of pollution created by traditional burial and cremation practices make a natural funderal the only way to go.
Very interesting! I wish more people knew about natural funerals. Is this something you can plan ahead for your family?
Greg Ross, yes you can plan ahead and have arrangements in place. This site might help you: https://www.homefuneralalliance.org
