Planning ahead

I've been getting a lot of calls lately from folks who would like to have a home funeral but haven't prepped their families ahead of time. Usually it doesn't work out for them to do it because someone in the inner circle is uncomfortable with it. That's understandable. It's not something many people know about and seems kinda weird if introduced in the moment. Who wants to create more strife/complications while grieving? It's sad, though, when with a little discussion and education ahead of time, a beautiful, relaxed, simple and natural home setting could be where loved ones grieve together in the first few days.
