Most funerals I have been to have been very dignified. Why? This is because everything was laid out as the deceased desired.
I remember when I was younger folks fought over who should take what flowers... I felt awkward.
It's wisdom it putting things in writing. That way the family will not fight over things... House? Car? Bills?....

Although many of us have different belief systems, we have one thing in common- death. It is our enemy.
