Maryland family alleges that Casketsite.com failed to deliver casket
Via WBAL-TV — When you are burying your mother, you don’t want anything to go wrong. One Maryland family claims that they were unable to bury their mother because an on-line casket retailer did not deliver the casket they ordered. Without a casket, the funeral had to be delayed. The family alleges that Casketsite.com never delivered the casket they ordered. Instead of burying their mother in a pink casket (like she wanted), the family had to get a blue one from a local funeral home. My heart goes out to the family. I fully understand the tragedy of not getting the color you want. I do not want to be in anything other than a black urn. Any other color of urn would make me and the ones I leave behind very sad. The Funeral Consumers Alliance suggests not paying for a casket until it is delivered. Or, I guess you could just order a casket from Walmart.
