A funeral home has the staff and faclilities to handle the many details that go into the care and preparation of the deceased. A cemetery is a designated place where the remains of family and friends are laid to rest.

Complaints concerning perpetual care cemeteries or the purchase of preneed funeral contracts including descriptions of the trust and insurance funding options available under the state law, should be direceted to:
