I have read an article in regards to funeral homes, that people aren't legally bound to creamatory services through
a funeral home. Does your hospital offer that type of service, because that's what my Dad wants to have done when he dies.
He also is planning on moving back up north so he'll be near you. He is 79 years old, and he's planning on living in a seniors apartment. Please let me know as soon as posible. Sincerely LouAnn Boylan
