    (c) Trust agreements and amendments to the trust agreements used to fund a pre-need contract shall be filed with the Comptroller.
    (d) (Blank).
    (e) A seller or provider shall furnish to the trustee and depositary the name of each payor and the amount of payment on each such account for which deposit is being so made. Nothing shall prevent the trustee from commingling the deposits in any such trust fund for purposes of its management and the investment of its funds as provided in the Common Trust Fund Act. In addition, multiple trust funds maintained under this Act may be commingled or commingled with other funeral or burial related trust funds if all record keeping requirements imposed by law are met.
