They say that you can't always get what we want in life but what’s worse is, we can’t get what we want after life, as well. How many funerals have you been at where you have questioned the lack of ‘personality of the deceased’ in the service? It is a serious thing. And a serious problem in the funeral business.
So should you be spending time planning your funeral now, even at an early age?
