Not enough respect for the dead
IT’S OBVIOUS there is not enough respect and concern being shown for our deceased relatives by some employees.
I empathise with some, as most employees and owners of funeral parlours treat all concerned at these very emotional times with concern and respect.
In a recent incident, a baby’s body was left on the roof of a funeral vehicle after a body transfer went horribly wrong.
In another incident, the body of a family’s elderly mum was left in an unrefrigerated van while the funeral directors visited a festival.
According to reports that wasn’t illegal. I beg to differ.
And finally, a funeral parlour transferred a body from the coffin the deceased’s family had chosen into a cardboard one prior to cremation and was caught out.
Surely in today’s society your departure from this earth, to wherever your beliefs are, deserves nothing less than respect and consideration for you and those left behind.
