Giving a good send-off is an emotionally therapeutic event after the death of a loved one. As a funeral can cost anything between R5 000 and R30 000, this expense can come as a shock to an already grieving family. They are probably just realising the financial implications of losing the income of a breadwinner. That is why you must take a look at Assupol funeral plans.
