The issues of the good and bad in Funeral Directors and Funeral Cost  is addressed in “Rest in Peace Insiders Tips to the Low Cost Less Stress Funeral”  
Congress did not approve National Funeral Directors day on March 11th as the NFDA requested. The NFDA in their March issue stated that Preneed Funeral Cost needs to be fixed. According to the NFDA it appears that Natioinal Funeral Directors Day will pass the United States House of Representatives. Here is what they Sent me:

Thanks to the efforts of NFDA members, especially those who attended the 2008 Advocacy Summit, the Senate passed S. Res. 390 designating March 11, 2008 as “National Funeral Director and Mortician Recognition Day”. The resolution passed the Senate late in the evening of March 11th due to the last minute efforts of Senators Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). This is the first time ever that Congress has officially recognized the importance and value of funeral directors to thier communities and the families they serve. The House version, sponsored by NFDA member Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-OH) and 74 other House members is expected to pass next week. A full copy of the resolution as passed by the Senate is set forth below.

110th CONGRESS

2d Session

S. RES. 390

Designating March 11, 2008, as National Funeral Director and Mortician Recognition Day.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

 December 6, 2007

 

Mr. KOHL (for himself, Mr. PRYOR, Mr. SCHUMER, Mr. JOHNSON, Mr. BROWN, and Mr. CHAMBLISS) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

 

March 11, 2008

 

Committee discharged; considered and agreed to
________________________________________
RESOLUTION

Designating March 11, 2008, as National Funeral Director and Mortician Recognition Day.

Whereas the death of a family member, friend, or loved one is a devastating emotional event;

Whereas the memorialization and celebration of the decedent’s life is the fabric of today’s funeral service;

Whereas the family of the decedent has traditionally looked to funeral directors and morticians for consolation, strength, and guidance in the planning and implementation of a meaningful funeral ceremony;

Whereas funeral directors and morticians have dedicated their professional lives to serving the families of their communities in their times of need for generations with caring, compassion, and integrity;

Whereas these special men and women see their chosen profession as a higher calling, a sacred trust, in serving every family regardless of social standing, financial means, or time of day or day of the year, whenever a death occurs; and

Whereas on this special day, March 11, 2008, it would be appropriate to pay tribute to these funeral directors and morticians who, day in and day out, assist our Nation’s families in their times of sadness and grief and help families mourn a death and celebrate a life:

Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Senate–

(1) takes this opportunity to pay the Nation’s collective debt of gratitude for all the hours and all the times they have put someone ahead of themselves by serving the living while caring for the dead;

(2) urges every American of every walk of life to embrace each of these special individuals with heartfelt thanks for their dedication to their profession; and

(3) designates March 11, 2008, as `National Funeral Director and Mortician Recognition Day’.

The NFDA IS ASSUMING THAT NATIONAL FUNERAL DIRECTORS DAY WILL PASS THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS.

It looks like the United States Congress will pass the United States Congress. The United States Congress is not Acknowledging that some of the TACTICS of Funeral Directors are deceptive.

The issues of the good and bad in Funeral Directors and funeral cost is addressed in “Rest in Peace Insiders Tips to the Low Cost Less Stress Funeral ” Your funeral guy will continue to advocate the low cost less stress Funeral. He will continue to help people to lower the cost of their family funerals. HE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO PERSUADE FUNERAL HOME OWNERS TO SELL LOWER COST FUNERALS. This will promote the broad prosperity, personal freedom and better future for all.

YOUR FUNERAL GUY,

R.BRIAN BURKHADT –AUTHOR, Funeral Director, State of Illinois, Commonwealth of Virginia.
