    I was so sorry to hear about your father. He was a great man and I will always have fond memories of both he and your mother. In my youth your Dad was my baseball coach, my scout leader and my friend. He was a great man who will be greatly missed .

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.
