I'm speechless. Thank you to the organization that is making the burials possible. :-(
What a wonderful gesture.
That is an idiotic rule saying the family has to claim the body and if they don't no one else can pay for a funeral. Talk about a waste of taxpayer dollars! If the family doesn't want to claim it then why in the heck wouldn't they let friends handle the arrangements?
I am surprised they keep all of the bodies in the morgue, i saw a documentary on how L.A. County handles this issue, I believe they cremate them after a certain amount of time and then have mass burials for the cremains later. It saves on space. If they know who the person is they take the expenses of handling the body out of the deceased's estate before releasing the funds to anyone.
