Dealing with the passing of a loved one can create quite a number of unforeseen challenges. Not only is there massive emotional pain and grief to deal with, but planning a funeral also necessitates a significant outlay of time, energy & money. Wrestling with these emotions while also needing to make sound, coherent choices for the family can often lead to frustration and dissent. Managing funeral costs can become quite the arduous task if not properly prepared. The average cost of a standard funeral ranges anywhere between $5500 and $7500. You should ask yourself if all these costs are indeed warranted. Oftentimes, due to the mental wear and tear from the overwhelming grief, as well as the need you feel to properly remember your deceased loved one, it is quite difficult to constrain your funeral expenses.
