I give no f_cks Volume 16: Mom mad at funeral home for putting son's remains in Walmart bag

A grieving mother in Ohio is disgusted after she found her son's cremated remains wrapped in a Walmart bag.

Nancy Bronner of Amelia, Ohio lost her 17-year-old son T.J. Mitchell last September due to a heart condition.

Ever since he was 15, her son knew he wanted to be cremated when he died. So when he passed away, his remains were cremated and his ashes split among family members into four urns.

But Ms Bronner was surprised when she opened her urn.

'I just wanted to hold my baby one last time,' she told WCPO. 'So I opened the urn, and found Walmart bag in the urn. The funeral home had put my son's ashes in a Walmart bag.'

She calls the act disrespectful, unprofessional and a desecration of her son's remains.
T.J. was cremated at McDaniel Funeral Home in Dry Ridge, Kentucky by Bob McDaniel, who is also the Grant County coroner.

The teens remains were being split between four urns - something the funeral home doesn't usually do - and no one in the family supplied bags for the urns which do not seal.

In an attempt to make sure no ashes spilled out, Mr McDaniel used bags that he had on hand to wrap the ashed in the urns.

He says he took scissors to the shopping bags to remove any store logos before wrapping the ashes.

T.J.'s father Thomas Mitchell, and Nancy Bronner's ex-husband, says using the Walmart bags could be in bad judgement but doesn't believe the coroner acted maliciously.

Mr Mitchell still keeps his sons remains wrapped in the grocery bag the funeral home provided.

Ms Bronner has since taken her son's ashes to another funeral home to be placed in a clear plastic bag.

Ms Bronner, who says she is in therapy over her son's death, has contacted the Kentucky Attorney General's Office and the Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors to complain about the funeral home.

'I don't care who you are, it's not right to put a human person's ashes in a Walmart bag,' she said. 'It is disrespectful. You don't do that to a parent who has lost their child. You don't do that to anyone. I just want to make sure that this never happens again to another person,' she said.

I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

Thats not what you want to do.

You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.
