The IFDA Preneed Trust continues as A Funeral Cost issue. But the secrets of this Funeral Cost and Trust Scandal are hidden and take time to research.If a funeral director is kind enough to be honest about low funeral cost options be sure to say” Thank you.”Recently I thanked a Funeral Director for his honest Blog Post about Funeral Directors and Funeral cost:
“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. Included in this call is ILLINOIS State Senator Randall Hultgren of Hultgren Funeral Home in Wheaton, IL.
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 IFDA and funeral leaders in the State will embrace ethics and honesty. Right now I just find myself too busy helping folks lower the cost of their funerals(as well as the stress)…to keep up with the hairsplitting.The IFDA ( Illinois Funeral Directors Association) knows the changes that are coming.
There will be blogs here from time to time as things become public on the IFDA and IFDA Funeral Homes as well as Funeral Leaders in the State of Illinois.
The Funeral cost issue of the “IFDA Preneed Trust.” continues to be a troubling.
Your Funeral guy.
