What's Eating Gilbert Grape

Question: When Gilbert and Arnie first meet Becky they tell her that Arnie's birthday is in 6 days. It is indicated that Mr. Carver dies and is buried sometime in between then, but if he died say two or three days before the party normally it would take about a week to plan a funeral. Are funerals planned quickly in smaller towns in the real world or is it just for the film?

Chosen answer: I don't know where you are from but here in the Northeast United States, funerals are planned and completed in 3-4 days. The Jewish bury their loved ones within 36 hours.
