#1 Tip: Don't buy a Sealer Casket, unless you want the inside of the casket to become gaseous and moldy (Picture a tomato decomposing in a cardboard box vs a plastic bag. The sealer casket is the disgusting plastic bag.)

Dual view of an over-sized casket designed & built by Robert Alexander, a craftsman in northern Utah. Did you know that if your loved one is over 300 lbs you will be pressured to buy a costly over-sized casket? And then an over-sized vault too! Consider the above casket ($500) for bodies weighing more that 300-500lbs) AND it fits in a standard cemetery vault!!
