One correction to the article, which states that the Funeral Rule was enacted in the 1970’s:
In 1984, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) established the Funeral Rule to give consumers of funeral services certain protections. The rule’s main objective is to ensure consumers receive adequate information concerning all of the goods and services they may purchase from a funeral provider.
Paula suggested the reporter look at other alternative container and casket sources, but the article does focus on just one casket provider. However, it ends with references to our organization serving the general public and options in facing death.
The story concludes with Paula’s quote, “Ultimately it’s all about making death a part of life.”
