    I am so sorry for your loss!! Your mother was my first childhood friend in Orange NJ. We lived down the hall from one another in our apartment. I knew her family well! Lydia was always so friendly, kind and loving! My prayers are with you all!! God Bless!

    So very shocked and saddened to hear my grammar school friend, Lydia has passed away. We would play games on f.b here together and she would mention in her posts how very proud of her children she was….Such a very good soul and a person who had many fine qualities. Her humor was amazing. Lydia was amazing! May she rest in peace.

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.
