Maybe don't send them through the postal system?

The tracking on items going via USPS are at best random at times, actually had better luck with tracking items from China. I have the best luck with UPS.

(Former mailman here) I've had to deliver remains to a national cemetery, every single time they were sent registered mail - which we has individuals are PERSONALLY responsible for - as in, if it gets lost in transit, the last person to handle it is on the hook for it.

When my husband passed, the funeral home lost his body for 2 weeks!  It wasn't until I threatened to sue that they miraculously found him.  My guess is... they scraped some ashes from a smoke stack somewhere and placed it in a urn.

I will say that was a very upsetting experience.

They may eventually show up, cremains to be seen.

I bet the dead husband just infiltrated the mail system to commit voter fraud.

Because Donald was an Air Force veteran who served in Vietnam and once worked as a federal police chief in Wisconsin, Christine wanted her husband's remains handled with military tradition.
When his remains arrived in the U.S., Christine said they got lost.


Can't get more military traditiony than that.

My idea for a cheap funeral was to be cremated and mailed with insufficient postage to a non existent address and spend eternity in a Lost Mail Facility.  The guy is living my dream.

Based on the headline I originally assumed that this was one of those "closeted married guys on Grindr" stories. I can't possibly be the only one.

We are going through this right now after a family member passed from covid-19.  Also, this funeral home doesn't respond to communications even for billing purposes.
On top of that a surprise part of the new tax "cut" law is that funeral cost insurance is now counted to assets for Medicaid.  So we got a nasty letter from Trump & Co threatening to cut funding for the nursing home if we didn't spend the policy, and specifically said we couldn't "give the money away" whatever TF that means (the joke is on them I guess since my relative is dead).
Trump and McConnell have farked things up so much.  They can DIAF.

I remember you saying that before. My experience with my Father in Law was a little different. Just the wrong coffin.

Really?

It's hard to spend the money when you don't have the body.

WTF? Really? We're caregivers for a family member with almost no cash but a significant pre-paid funeral account. This is the first I've heard of that.

"And they decided without really doing a whole lot of tests that he had COVID and were treating him as such," said Christine, who never tested positive for the virus.

How many tests would they need to do to show that he had Covid-19?  He had all of the symptoms and tested positive but they didn't check for pink eye...

/Reads like she doesn't want to believe the results because then it wouldn't be a hoax

Another Government Employee: Just the wrong coffin.


And once you've got he bodies composed just right in the coffin, the quickest way to fix that is just to switch the heads.

She passed before the threatening letter from the government arrived, so they can eat a bag of dicks (dead and off of medicaid now anyway).  I feel bad for others who still have family in nursing homes on medicaid and have funeral insurance policies for them.  Also, the insurers are a-holes for sharing that info with the government.  The money could be spent immediately on a funeral home, however if that business goes bankrupt or who knows what the money could be lost.
Now if the feds take us to court over past medicaid payments due to the insurance policy, then an attorney will  be involved.
Because a health care system built around public health and dignity rather than tax cuts for the wealthy is no different than communism under Mao or Stalin.

Poster is suffering from TDS and has no idea what he/she is talking about.  Medicaid is partially federal funded but run by the state.  All of the rules come from the state and can vary quite a bit at each location.

Also willing to bet that rules have been in place for decades.

Insert "bu, bu, bu, bu, but Trump!"
