Good information. Thanks. I did manage to contact one funeral home and am waiting for a reply. Didn't know you had to fill out an application. News to me. Thanks, that is helpful. Speaking of applications, I had requested a Social Security Application for my grandfather who I knew nothing about and luckily he named his father, Sidney Smith and his mother Nancy Farley and I was able to find my grandfather at 3 yrs old and that he had brothers and sisters, all new to me. It becomes so overwhelming at times and I love the feeling. I appreciate your suggestions and any info is a step towards an accomplishment.
