When my husband’s mother passed away (2008), my husband paid for the cremation but it was agreed between the 3 brothers that the youngest son, Mike, would keep her physical cremains with him. Mike and his girlfriend moved to Illinois from Florida several years ago. Fast forward to May 18,2021, and Mike overdosed on heroine and passed away. My husband and I have been asking Mikes girlfriend for his mothers ashes for the past year and she is refusing to send them to us, despite my husband telling her he will pay the cost for shipping them to him. Mikes girlfriend never met their mother and had no relationship with her but she believes that God wants mike and his mother next to each other in her apartment. We don’t know what to do to get my husbands mothers ashes back from her and my husband is crushed.
