Need more advice about paying for funeral expenses. My mom passed away yesterday. She had pre-paid most of her burial costs, but between the funeral home handling her cremation and the cost of her marker/granite slab, the "overage" was $6,000. The marker/slab alone was $4200 and I had to get it on payments, $300+ a month, more than my car payment. It's all on us. She was in a nursing home on Medicaid. She has no assets, insurance or anything else. We are on Social Security and have expenses of our own that we can barely afford. We live in Ohio. Is there any help available out there?
