“I want words at my funeral.
But I guess that means you need life in your life.”

So it's not so much which road you take, as how you take it."

Funeral Consumers Information Society, also known as FCIS, is a volunteer-run nonprofit dedicated to helping Michiganians make dignified, meaningful and affordable funeral arrangements since 1961.
In 2006, our mission expanded to advocate for the re-establishment of family rights in after-death care, including family-led home funerals, and to foster sustainable environmental practices, such as green burial, in the state.
If you need financial assistance, contact the Michigan Department of Human Services.
