Negligence by Caniff Funeral Home

I am so upset that Caniff Funeral Home and my brother cremated my Mom, Pauline Lemaster, against her wishes. She did not have a preneed form for cremation but had a burial plot at Golden Oaks Cemetery. She buried my Dad in 92 in a ground burial and Caniff Funeral Home did the funeral. Marcia Caniff Davis made all the arrangements for my Mom with my brother and sister, ignoring my calls and left me out completely. That was my Mom too and I had a right to give her a proper funeral. Mother wanted pink roses, a pink dress, and a pink liner in her casket so her hair would look white, and she was so beautiful. I was called at 5:32pm and told by Pat Caniff "Your Mom will have no funeral, no visitation and is on the way to the crematorium and has probably already been burned." I had to find her body at a Portsmouth Crematorium and see her in a garage, lying on a plywood crate, unembalmed and an odor, mouth wide open, and a baby burning in another oven. I took her roses and read her Psalms and told her how much I loved her and said goodbye. Caniff did not even offer to drive me to Portsmouth. I have never cired so hard in all my life! It is a nightmare I will never forget. Caniff's argument is they are not a crematorium, but Caniff made all the arrangements and had all the forms signed and drove her body to Portsmouth! Caniff should have trusted but verified the forms because the family and coroner told Marcia about a family dispute. My brother, Roger, lied and signed as Executor, and my sister, Janet Gail, signed as his witness. When the ashes were returned to Caniff they buried them in her burial plot next to my Dad and did not call and invite us. This is so wrong and I pray I can stop this from ever happening to another family. I want the entire community to know about this tragedy. May God forgive them for how they treated my Mom and me.
Please do not use Caniff Funeral Home in Westwood for your loved one.

Incompetence

Caniff failed to follow KY Laws on Cremation by not obtaining my wife's permission to cremate her mother. Her mother did not have a pre-need authorization and did not want to be cremated. Caniff catered to my wife's greedy and vindictive brother and sister. They wanted cremation because they were embarrassed by a lawsuit we had filed against her brother. My wife's mother deserved a proper funeral and whole burial next to her husband who was buried whole in 1992. Is there no shame?

Caniff did not follow Kentucky Law when they cremated my mother-in-law. They only catered to my wife's greedy and vindictive brother and sister. Pauline Lemaster did not want to be cremated. She wanted to be buried whole next to her husband. They did not even ask my wife's opinion. She only got to see her mother's body at the crematory in Portsmouth, Ohio just before she was put in the oven. We...
