Amazing and such a wealth of knowledge here. My nephew was murdered 2 yrs ago and the funeral people were so fast to sell my grieving brother the "sealed casket". It pains me so much to know that my nephew is in a disgusting stew because of greedy sales people. I wish there was something I could do, but know I can't. I just know that I will choose the non-sealed casket for myself and tell my loved ones to opted for that too. Thank you to all of you who took the time to help us learn about this painful process of putting our loved ones to rest and not be ripped off by greed and lies of many, like what we went thru with my nephew. Thank you!!!
