Does anyone know how long this company takes?
Right now my family and I are trying to figure out a way to pay off the funeral home in the next 2 weeks almost 9 grand. I called the agent before noon today and she was out.
Anyway if you been through this how long does it take? I am just worried to death about getting the services taken care of and that isn't right we should not be worried about that right now.
