|Comment||Lisa, Thank you so much for your answer. We thought she had no right but were very worried. It is always very emotional when things involve loved ones. It hurts even more when you know your loved one cannot do anything to protect herself. Even though it is after life, you do not want her resting place disturbed. Especially when it is because of the greed of someone that has no care about the feelings of the persons family. I will contact the cemetery tomorrow and tell them what is going on. Thank you again.

Funeral Law. Having written a 512-page book on funeral law for consumers with state-by-state information, I am very conversant with consumer rights in this regard: What are the laws on disposition of cremated remains? Is embalming required? Do I have to use a funeral home? Can I have a home wake? Is it a state law to buy a vault? I prepaid for a funeral but changed my mind. They won`t give me all my money back. What can I do? . . . If you have an immediate need for information because a death has just occurred or is about to occur, you may call me at 802-482-6021.
I have monitored the funeral industry on behalf of consumers for over 20 years. I have been a guest speaker to funeral trade organizations, consumer workshops, and social service professionals. I am regularly consulted by lawyers and legislators as well as journalists.
