On Dec 1st, I got a message from someone asking me if Judith was a family member of mine and to call her if I was. So I did. I was informed that she had passed away on Nov 30th 2015. She is my grandmother and they could not find or get ahold of my uncle (who is also very sick so no one knew where he was) or my father (her power of attorney). So i started the task of getting ahold of everyone. Lawyers, the place her body was sent, everyone. She was sitting at the coroner's UNCLAIMED. that bothers me more then anything. I did finally find my father whom said he would see what he could do about getting her home. She is in florida, I am in maine. She has a plot 12 miles from my house. And of course we (or at least I do) want her to be put to rest in her rightful place. With her mother and father. About a month later, my uncle finally contacted me. He didn't even know she had passed! Him being the lawyer I the family (retired shortly before he passing) I figured he would be the perfect one ro take care of all this. As he said he would because he loved right there. Fast forward to today. March 23rd 2016. I figured since I haven't heard from anyone since dec, I would call down to where she was and see what was going on. My father was sent the paper work to claim her and take care of what had to be done. He didn't send them back. My uncle went to Florida cremation, where her body was being held (yes held because of being unclaimed) and signed a consent form for her to be cremated (what she wished anyway). But the sent to the city!! To be put in a plot with others who have been unclaimed!! I'm sorry, but I do not feel this is right at all!! She HAS a final testing place and that's where she needs to be!! So I spoke to someone at the city office. He said that this does happen (which is sad) if someone cant afford to do the whole service and all that themselves. But NO ONE has contacted me about ANYTHING since December!!! I'm a bit livid about this. So what I'm asking for here, is help to pay back the city for the cremation and to have her remains shipped HOME where she needs to be and buried with her mother and father. What she wanted. It's the least I could do. ANY help would be soooooo great!! No one knows how much that would mean to me. Thank u
