My Dad only has a couple weeks left. I've been asked to transport Dad, in a homemade casket, to the cemetery in my truck. I'm uncomfortable with this idea and have told my family so. I understand the need to save money and want to be supportive, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea.
Among other issues, I'm not sure what I need from a legal standpoint to be able to do this. My brother, who is making the arrangements doesn't know. I think he thinks we're just gonna load Dad up and take him down. The cemetery wants us to think that we can't do it ourselves. I've been trying to do my own research, but I'm not coming up with anything and am not sure who to call to find out.
I imagine I would need a copy of the death certificate in case I got pulled over. What else?
