Crematory Sends Grieving Utah Family Wrong Remains

TradinghedDealing with the loss of a loved one is a stressful and traumatic event. In times of mourning, the bereaved do not need to endure any additional complications. For Kim Goodsell, unwelcome chaos was thrust upon her and mourning family members after the loss of her brother, Kevin. Goodsell’s brother died in Stockton, California. Her family arranged to have his cremated remains shipped to Utah for burial. Upon arrival, Goodsell noticed that the name noted on the remains were not those of her brother. Apparently, the crematory in California had shipped the wrong remains to Utah. Though the staff was apologetic, Goodsell remarked that the events represented “the worst 75 hours of our lives.”
