Getting Your Ducks in a Row: Do you wish you had a reliable source for comparing funeral home prices? Do you know for sure that funeral costs are always going up? Is embalming required by law? Must you purchase a casket or urn from a funeral home? Do you need a funeral home at all? Come get the facts from a consumer advocate with nothing to sell but a whole lot of information to share.
Our speaker, Nancy Walker is a volunteer with the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Central Texas, a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit that has been educating people in our community about end-of-life options for over 50 years. Nancy served on their board for six years, four as its President. She is now the organization’s Executive Director.
