Death is, unfortunately, a part of life. Everything that lives eventually dies, at least in its corporeal form. With that said, typically when a person dies in America, their life is celebrated in the form of a funeral, wake, or other get together with family, friends, and other loved ones.
Typical funeral costs vary according to area and by funeral home, so there is no real way to gauge average funeral costs. The best bet to finding out the cost for each individual service would be to approach each individual funeral home or to trust online reviews, of which there are plenty, written all by people who have used the very same funeral homes.
