This bill makes it virtually impossible for a surviving spouse or other family member to change arrangements made before death by a decedent EVEN IF CONDITIONS ARE MATERIALLY CHANGED. Even if a spouse and the mortician agreed, the mortiician probably would not dare change the plans if there was a surviving child or other relative who objected to the change. This make the funeral a ceremony for the dead and the recalcitrant, and not for the living. This will have to be changed when the people of Montana discover how it works.
