I pre-paid funeral expenses for my mother, who is 82 years old and a nursing home resident. She has multiple disabilities from a ruptured brain aneurysm and is bedridden, but her major organs are healthy. I visit her weekly and I am her POA. Aside from me and my dear sister in law (wife of my deceased brother), nobody else visits her. She has another son (my half brother) who visits infrequently and never calls me to ask how she is doing. My mother also has a multitude of grandchildren and great grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Only one niece visits regularly. Everyone else is too busy or lives too far away to visit. They do not send birthday cards or Xmas cards. So, I am ambivalent about having any huge funeral for my mother when the time comes. My thoughts are to have a simple gravesite service. She has a burial plot and casket that we pre-paid. I want to honor my mother and the value of her life, but I am not keen on having a big to-do funeral with reception for fake family members. Any advice?
