By CAROLYN HAX, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST Published 12:30 pm, Saturday, June 9, 2018 Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn: My husband died suddenly three months ago. We had never discussed funeral plans, but he was not religious and disliked the religion he was raised in, so I insisted on a nonreligious funeral because I thought that would best reflect his wishes. His very religious parents were upset with me and have been cold to me since then. I would like to have a relationship with them but am unsure what to do.

ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) -- It's not the most comfortable conversation, but thinking ahead for your own funeral, even several years down the line, could save your family thousands of dollars. "No one wants to come in to a funeral home and say, 'I'm ready to make arrangements and speak about what is going to take place.' One thing is that you have to sit down and make those plans," said Joel Gonzales, general manager of Martinez Funeral Home and Crematory. Although the median price for a funeral ranges between $7,000 and $9,000, planning still seems out of the ordinary for most people. "Funeral pre-planning? For myself? No, I'm hoping I don't go away anytime soon," said Tim Cuevas, an Odessa Business Owner. But for Gonzales, this conversation is just part of another day in the office. He has been in the business for decades and said he's seen the costs of funerals rise first hand. He said waiting could mean you pay more. "Of course, its gonna fluctuate on you," Gonzales explained.
