2. Two things. Do you have anything like a Memorial Society where you live?

It's not a pre pay thing but more of a pre planning. Here in Georgia, you register with them and they have already negotiated fees for cremation and burials which includes transporting the body. They agree not to try and upsell the families once the person has died which is what catches so many people off guard at a very emotional time. Right now a cremation is $995, a direct burial is $1995 and a complete funeral with service and burial is $3999.

The other thing is some funeral homes themselves are offering negotiated upfront pricing (as you mentioned, a package). The key is shopping around and making your plans before you need them.

With her age and health condition, I wouldn't think you could get much insurance that would be as affordable.
