Does anybody know

if there is a place in Santa Clara CA that will pay for a family to have a family member cremated and let the family have the ashes? My step-sisters halfbrother died just a couple of days ago and they can't afford to cremate him. If the state pays for it they don't give the family the ashes.

  • That happened to my best friend. Her family could not afford to pay anything when her mother was murdered. What they found out later was that they could have made arrangements for small payments to the funeral home. Most places are willing to work with you. There MUST be some sort of help for this situation no matter where it is....

  • Call crematoriums and just ask what to do
