When somebody dies, the last thing their loved one’s need is more confusion or a sales pitch.

That’s why the state of Texas made it illegal for funeral homes to solicit business at or near the time of a loved one’s death.

This law protects the grieving and provides them the time they need to sort out their affairs without pressure.

Remember: YOU choose which funeral home to use.

Even when a funeral home picks up a decedent at the request of local authorities, that funeral home is forbidden from making first contact with the family. That is the responsibility of the local authorities.

In determining which funeral home or crematory to use, remember that you can switch to a funeral home you feel is more appropriate without incurring a fee.

Don’t be taken advantage of during your family’s time of crisis. Remember that you have the choice.

Choose wisely, choose Putnam.
