Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Service Corporation International and Stewart Enterprises, Inc.; File No. 131-0163
I am writing about the funeral contract between the Metropolitan Washington Jewish Community and the new corporate owners of Hines Rinaldi Funeral Home in Silver Spring, MD. Thank you for your favorable consideration of the request of the Metropolitan Washington Jewish Community to retain its group status and support us in our dire need for a reasonably priced funeral contract that covers all the members of our community. We have had this contract with Hines Rinaldi for many years and rely heavily on their agreement to let us bury our loved ones at a reasonable cost. Many of us are not wealthy. The burden on families of the new costs would be very heavy. You have done a great service to to our community. Thank you, Jane Handler
