Some directors say the family has to be there at delivery of an outside
purchased casket. This is NOT true and is prohibited as well.
There are other "tactics" that are played out at the Cemetery and or Monument Sales also! Becoming informed is the KEY! There are Many devoted in this field, however many too, whose motive may be questionable or looking to make as much profit as possible at this appointment.
