    Garry this is your dad–saying so long to a son we all love so much. Our hearts are broken. We thank God for all the years you were here on earth with us and for all the happy fun times we had together. As we’ve heard it said before–WE MUST ALL PASS OVER THE RAINBOW–and we will see you on the other side- Love Dad.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
