There are many questions that have been asked of me since the Article on Sunday regarding the Illinois Funeral Directors Association in  the Chicago Tribune. Any time funeral cost money is misused  in a trust funeral cost is raised. The big question is: When funeral directors in Illinois run out of money to cover their losses with the IFDA who will cover the funeral  bill of the folks involved? The answer is we do not know.

Here is some of the questions I have been asked?

1. Why was  Senator Roland Burris not mentioned in the Chicago Tribune Article?

Answer: I do not know. It certainly raises some suspicions as to who else may be involved. Senator Roland Burris is a significant player in this Scandal.

2. Why did the Tribune not name the names of specific IFDA officials involved?

Answer: I do not know. Several of the folks involved are well  recognized funeral providers in Chicago and the suburbs.

3. Why did the Tribune not name the names of Board Members involved?

Answer: I do not know but other  Newspapers in the State have revealed some of the  Board players involved.

4. Why did the Tribune mention Preneed as a viable option in another article in the same  March 1st edition that they reported a 50 million+ USD IFDA  Preneed  Trust Scandal?
