Your Funeral Guy: Call Funeral Directors to honesty on Funeral Cost
Recently I thanked a Funeral Director on another blog for his honesty on Funeral Cost.
Here is what I said it is worth repeating here:
“Thank you for your honesty.
we share a trust level well short of that of mechanics, stockbrokers, real estate and insurance agents. This information should be a wake up call.
Only a few in our profession are this honest and candid. On another blog on this site I have mentioned & commented on some scandals. They are the result of the sins of more than a few. Let it be known that inspite of some blogs and comments that are tough, I have withheld information from the media on these events. Instead I have called on Leaders in the Funeral Industry to be honest. You sir are a part of the city set on the hill.
Your ethics are appreciated. I love helping families and for that reason I wrote a new book called Rest in Peace. In this work I declare that there are honest ethical funeral directors like yourself who are willing to embrace the changes that are to come!”
It is my hope that the ILLINOIS FUNERAL DIRECTORS ASSOCIATION (IFDA )will embrace ethics and honesty.
Right now I just find myself too busy helping folks lower the cost of their funerals…to keep up with this.
The IFDA knows the changes that are coming.
To the IFDA I Wish you the best.
There will be blogs here from time to time as things become public on the IFDA Funeral cost issue and the “IFDA Preneed Trust.”
The IFDA has had it’s wake up call.
Earlier this year it came out that the IFDA- had mis managed 40 Million Dollars of the folks “IFDA Preneed Trust” money in Illinois.
Beware of organizations like the IFDA in keeping Funeral Directors Honest and keeping your lower cost funeral Specific State Senator Randall Hulfgren refused to take action on this along with hultgrenfh. Hultgren Funeral Home is not the only culprit. Trimble Funeral Homes www.trimblefuneralhomes.com had family on the IFDA committees and has refused comment on the IFDA Preneed Trust situation inspite of positve press from…Quad-City Dispatch
