I had one relative who made her arrangements in advance because in she didn't want her family to overspend. Another one said she had made all of the arrangements but had only bought the grave site.
The saddest one was for the uncle I was responsible for. They had no children, all of his cousins had passed. He had one sister who never went anywhere. (That's another story.) My husband and I and one of his caregivers brought her family. He liked to sit in her garden and listen to music. My husband and I were the only ones there who knew the person he was before.
