My uncle's funeral has been completed.

It was a small, family-only funeral, but it turned out to be a good one.

However, I felt that I needed to be careful with Japanese funeral service providers.

They recommend a lot of unnecessary options.

I think it would have cost more than $20,000 if we had followed the vendor's instructions.

We skipped unnecessary options, so the cost was around $5,000.

I am sure my uncle, who was very careful with his money, would have been satisfied.
