Home funerals

I didn't even know home funerals still occurred, but apparently they are growing in popularity among some families looking for a more intimate and less commercial end-of-life experience. While it seems most home funerals are followed by cremation, this article indicates in most states you can still be buried on your own property if it's rural land and you get the right permits.

Many report strong psychological benefits from a home funeral similar to what was common generations ago.

Article from the NYTimes

Another good article from MSNBC

and another similar from the Washington Post.
