    May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields and, Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    February 22, 2019 Angela “Marie” Dick, PO Box 199, Unalakleet, AK 99684 We understand you have taken control in retaining the ashes of Leonard G. Mendola, however, we implore you to respect his wishes and the sanctity of this matter. Please join the family of Leonard G. Mendola in allowing the burial and funeral to continue in a moral and legal manner. The family and friends have been unable to reach you on the phone or email. Moral Matters Respect is a common thread, tying together all the considerations families have to make when debating how to deal with a loved one’s cremated remains. Respect for the body. Respect for the place of burial. Respect for the religion that the person belongs to. This means that families should approach the disposition of ashes from a perspective of care and concern. While this may seem obvious, it is not to everyone the ashes must be kept in tact. Ultimately, while traditional burial and cremation are two very different concepts, they also have a lot in common. In both cases, families should be given the opportunity to grieve in the form of a funeral or memorial service. Preferably, families should schedule the service shortly after their loved ones have died. That way, friends and relatives can gather to reminisce and remember the person who passed, as a means to progress through their own journeys of grief. And then, after the ceremony, the ashes may be properly buried, in the right location. With the right approach, families show their regard for their loved ones and the institutions and world around them. While there are many rules about the burial of ashes, people can still find wonderful options that will serve their loved ones’ preferences. The key is to honor the loved one who has passed, with proper attention to the disposition of ashes and performance of rituals and ceremonies important to the deceased’s spiritual beliefs. With this attention and an opportunity for family and friends to grieve through a memorial service, families resolve the most important legal, religious and moral considerations facing them. Please allow us to have a funeral and bury Leonard G. Mendola’s ashes. Leonard made his confirmation in the Catholic Church after many years of studying the Catholic Catechism. We would like to carry out his wish to be buried in Bethel, Alaska. It has been over a month and we implore you to allow us to proceed with a funeral is the right thing to do. Sincerely, Family and Friends
