The Funeral Consumers Alliance is here to provide help for
planning simple, dignified, & affordable final arrangements.
Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll!
Leave thy low-vaulted past!
Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, ‘Chambered Nautilus’
