In April last year, my husband passed away suddenly from a heart attack. We knew his heart wasn’t good, had talked about making arrangements but didn’t get it done. Fortunately for me, I remembered we had a neighbor, Dave Scarpone, that works for the Trident Society in Rancho Mirage.
I phoned him, explained my situation, and he immediately took over. He arranged for having him picked up at the hospital, and along with Tamela Meased-Van Vactor, took care of everything connected with his cremation, up to and including personally delivering his ashes to me in time for his celebration.
At such a difficult time, I was so thankful to have the help and support they gave me. It helped ease the difficulty of my loss my being able to focus on attending to other things connected with losing my best friend and companion for 36 years. All of the information they provided also helped direct me with the necessary paperwork, etc, that is required after losing a spouse.
I would highly recommendTrident to anyone considering cremation.

Excerpt from the Cremation Answer Book:
What documents and signatures are needed?
A death certificate is required by law, and is completed by Trident Society with the necessary information provided by the family. Permits for cremation cannot be obtained until the medical authorities provide these signatures.
This certificate will be delivered to the physician and medical examiner for the listing of the official cause of death and the required legal signatures.
Realize that cremation service providers have no control over the length of time necessary for these signatures to be obtained. Autopsies and medical records may delay signatures by physicians and medical examiners.
