The Florida cemetery where my deceased 23 year old daughter's and my 20 year life partner's ashes are interred since 2010 keeps calling me, asking for my dead partner, Bruce.http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/floridatoday/obituary.aspx?pid=145611187http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/floridatoday/obituary.aspx?pid=140274794
The reporter of today's story, Britt Kennerly of Gannett News, met me back then at a yearly candle lighting held by the support group for parents of deceased children, Compassionate Friends. She was covering the event. It was three moths after my daughter suddenly died. She wrote about my story in Dec 2010.http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/yourlife/mind-soul/2010-12-24-groups-help-families_N.htm
When the funeral home called for him around September 2014, I complained directly to the manager, threatening action if it didn't stop. He asked for two days to investigate and rectify the situation.
He called back and said he thought it was fixed. I said to him,
"I think I've been patient. You've had three warnings. If it happens again, I won't contact you. I'll take my case to the media...and then I'm sure you'll get it fixed."
They called for Bruce this month on March 3 and, after being informed he was dead, again on March 9th.
Here's the first media round; the local Florida Today paper.
Next Tuesday the second round is fired on WKMG Channel 6 Orlando when an investigative report on the funeral home is aired.
I hope they get the message.
