While I don't think that removing statues rewrites history, I think it is a waste of tax dollars.  Germany has no nazi statues but they remember the history.

Now if they want to replace the statues with a statue of a heavy set woman of indeterminate race with 6 kids at her knees and she is holding a check that says WELFARE.  Then I am for that....As long as the statue is names Modern Slavery of LBJ.

Sorry for your loss. 

The best deals are when done in advance.  Most, if not all, funeral homes have those plans.  Naturally, some are better deals than others.  I print direct mail for a lot of homes.

Thanks guys I appreciate the kind words.
I was peeved at the prices but really unhappy with the tactics.
We have cut the $'s down further and can handle it, but makes me wonder how heavy the financial burden is for most people.
Again thanks for the kind words but I needed to vent on this one.

In a more recent Past one president imprisoned all the people of a certain race.  - why are his monuments not coming down ?
Another brought segregation back to all the govt offices as one th the first things he did when he got in office. - not sure if he has any monuments but why are they not talking about him.
They are FDR and Woodrow Wilson both democrats.

back to statue hate - I find it oh so ironic that prior to their candidate's loss to Donald Trump last year (and subsequent losses elsewhere) the nitwits of the dumbocratic party had absolutely no interest in historical statues, Confederate or otherwise

ya don't 'spose they're trying to court a particular voting demographic that they need if they're ever to gain seats at any level, do ya - naw - they wouldn't prostitute themselves in that manner - would they

Sorry to hear that my man. Losing a family member, especially a parent, is always difficult.
When my in-laws passed away many years ago all of their arrangements were pre-planned and they had insurance that covered everything which eased the burden on my wife and her siblings.
When my brother passed away unexpectedly last year I was the only family member that stepped up although his son contributed what he could. He told me a few times over the years that he wanted to be cremated so it cost about $3,500 and I did shop around.
Again I'm sorry for your loss and hope your family is able to see through this tough time.
