    He was so funny. I would ask about more natural green burials considering the fact that embalming fluid is harsh chemicals and bad for the environment and even cremation leaves a big carbon footprint. Keep in mind over 55 million people die each year. That is allot of cremation and allot of embalming fluid.

    I have a question. If I person who passed doesn’t have legs because of something that happened in their life. Do they still have to pay for the full adult casket. Or do they pay for a child’s casket. Also do the prices vary on how big the casket is or just the design and materials used.
