I hope this is another rumor that Somerset is known for. At dinner tonight a man at the table next to me told me that a funeral home last month had a graveside service for a gentleman in the Nancy area. When they got there the FH had forgotten to call for a tent, forgot to have the grave dug and forgot to get the grave liner called in.They had to place the casket on a picnic table for the service., after the servic the family left and the funeral person left. The casket was left by it's self until a family member showed up 3 hrs.later setting on the picnic table until they could dig the grave. He gave me the name of the family, name of FH.,name of funeral director and FH.I hope someone can tell me he is all wrong and this is not true. I had hoped to use this FH for my mother who is at the point of death. I may just call them myself and ask them about this or if if we're some other FH.8100

As far as I'm concerned Funeral Homes are very professional and courteous to someone in their hours of need. As far as I'm concerned you're an idiot who's going on hearsay. If they find out who you are and this story isn't true then the FH can sue you for Libel. Are you prepared for that?

And since when the hell are there picnic tables at cemeteries? Even the larger ones, I doubt, would have a picnic table.

I call BS - When a funeral is arranged , with ANY funeral home , one of the 1st things discussed is where is the deceased to be buried - NOBODY forgets to dig a grave - Even I wouldn't post something like that - Besides , one of the funeral directors MUST remain graveside , until the container is interred and the grave closed - More BS than a stockyard -

A picnic table seems like a nice addition to a cemetery. Many have benches you can sit or rest on. Why not a picnic table? You could spend a little more time with a loved one passed on.

How in the hell can a FH sue someone when he or she did not name a FH. It looks like to me you know more about this than the rest of us are you holding back? I am sure burial sights are made also, the thing is the funeral director must call the vault co. To dig the grave if he is not called then a hole is not going to just show up You would be surprised how many directors have forgotten to put the obit in the paper, forgot to call the casket flowers into the florist, did not call the vault in left the jewelry on the people he'll man mistakes happen thes men are not gods they are people. Granted some make more mistakes then others if the story is truethen I think you will see a lawsuit not to the person who started this but the director who did it.

I can understand a mistake, but you don't leave the body and leave it sitten outside on the picnic table.

The person asked a question,and did not make a statement.No name was mentioned,They just wanted to know if it was true.

I don't think a FH would ever admit this but I'd heard it also.
It just seemed too bizarre.

Oh and I'm sure this has happened to your loved ones MANY times over, Right? You're just jumping on the bandwagon because you've got nothing better to do with your time than gossip and keep a lie going.

I truly don't know. When I first heard it, it was so bizarre I didn't pay much attention.

One would think that the family would already have done this. It's up to them unless it was an indigent.
