yes...Sis is improving...

We are having an issue with the funeral home .... did you know that even if you have a pre-paid arrangement, if the casket is not of a certain level, they won't bury you in that casket if you died with COVID? Evidently the level my parents picked out and paid for is not 'sufficient' for COVID burials...sigh...costs a couple hundred more to raise the level to the 'approved' one..

and the funeral home has not sent the additional amount contract to be DocuSigned yet...so they have not ordered the Death Certificates...and that is hanging up closing bank accounts and other stuff - like the sale of their condo, which is in escrow - the lady buying it hoped to close Feb 1...that is not going to happen.... The backup with so many dying of COVID seems to have really overwhelmed their process.

Oh no....... I had no idea about the casket thing.  That sounds really strange.  I hope things get worked out...

You are kidding!  That's crazy.  Do they also have to be buried with a mask on?  I'm so sorry for all of these Covid issues.   Prayers and a lot of deep breaths.

sounds like a way to wring more money out of you. :(

Oh wow, it never occurred to me that you would have to get a special casket.

But in light of worries when polar ice caps melt having other terrible diseases released it make sense.

I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with all of this.
