I hope it is okay.
I post this here because while you all know me
you really don't know me.
Plus I value the wide range of opinions here and hope to gain some guidance for your comments.
I plan on talking with a spiritual adviser
also.
Thank you all in advance for your comments.


If someone you love (Mother) was dying,
and they have said for as long as
everyone can remember,
that they wanted to be cremated,
with their ashes scattered at sea.
ALSO
Your loved one could no longer express their wishes because of Alzheimer or dementia
and has NEVER stated wishes to the contrary.
BUT
Another relative (sister) wanted your loved ones
ashes buried in their family plot
because that would make them feel better.

Would you honor your Mothers wishes
or comfort your sister?
I know this is a pretty heavy question.
Thanks again.

Bob, I’m sorry this is even a burden you’re dealing with. There are no easy answers, as you welll know.

Just thinking about how I would react, were I in your shoes, I’d have to honor Mom’s wishes. I know it’s often easier to appease the living, but you have to look at yourself in the mirror every day. What makes your blood pressure settle to normal and allow you to drop your shoulders and breathe? I’d guess it’s knowing you gave Mom what she wanted.

Without getting too deep in the weeds, ask yourself, “Why is Sister Sally (not likely her real name, of course), so set on appeasing her own guilt? Or is it guilt?

The bottom line for me: I would do what Mom asked.

I agree Bob that it is a heavy question but to me it is clear cut. I have an Advanced Directive as to what---- I WANT to happen to ---My Body--- when I am gone or unable to make sound decisions. Even without something in writing why should your Mom get less than what she wanted?
I can understand why knowing EXACTLY where her ashes are makes it easier on someone who wants to visit and/or not completely let go just yet vs. her remains are somewhere in the ocean.
Maybe comfort your sister but follow your mom's plan. Take care. Mel

I've heard of some people scattering ashes in multiple places; perhaps see if the sister would be OK with that. If not, then I'd go along with the sister; you're going to have to answer to her for the rest of YOUR lives. There's the service where they launch a small amount of cremains into space. I've lived within 2 miles of Puget Sound for most of my life, and see people scattering ashes there all the time; I never realized there were so many people with ties to the sea. The Washington State Ferry System will even honor that, IF arrangements are made beforehand, sort of a stop-and-toss, but I wonder how many people just toss them over from the car deck (probably how it gets done most of the time) on their own. I say appease the sister, or she'll never forgive you, but have her be responsible for whatever the funeral home charges.

86 pushing 87, 3 heart attacks 3 cancers behind me so I think there may be a limit to my future. The point of that information is to prove there is a reason for a similar discussion around our house. The bride agrees that Cremation and burial of the Cremains at the local military cemetery should be MYchoice and not to be influenced by family intent on some personal feeling. The bride shares similar feelings. We had a family talk about this, may be too late with your Mom and family members but if every one knows her feelings then you should not be pressured to change what your Mom wants.

I would help you if I could,and I know what you're going thru!
Dealing with a similar problem myself.
We lost our youngest brother 2 weeks ago today.
I know what his last wishes are and am trying my best to honor them.
Getting my other 3 siblings to agree has been a real trial!
The fact that I'm financing the funeral arrangements is helping a lot.But,we're getting there.
I think that dividing your mothers ashes between both places may be the best decision for all,if everyone agrees.And,I don't think she would mind.

Split...Crematorium has some nice jewelry that would allow your sister to carry a small part with her with the bulk serving mom's final wishes...Just my input. When all is said and done, they live in your heart don't they?

My mom suffered and died from ALS, but while she was still capable, she arranged her funeral, cremation, and to have her ashes shipped to southern Illinois for burial with her family. My dad's ashes are buried in the Michigan UP, where he was born. These were their wishes and honored. Your sister grieves and she doesn't know how or want to let go. I think GregH has the right idea about giving your sister something to hold on to. My final wishes are to be cremated, ashes to be disposed of, and no services, what so ever. If you didn't visit me when I was alive, why come when I'm dead?

I feel for you and what you are going through. My feeling is that you need to honor your mother’s wishes but be considerate of your sister’s feelings. I think you should split the ashes. Either do as suggested and have a piece of jewelry or whatever made so your sister can have something to hold onto, or a more substantial amount of ashes to bury if that is what she really wants and then spread the rest according to your mother’s wishes.

I would agree with those who said to split the ashes to satisfy your sisters wishes and your mother’s wishes and would think your mother would agree if she were able to take part in these discussions.

My condolences for the loss of your mother, I visited my 88 year old mom in PEI this weekend past and am lucky to still have her and she is in relatively good health.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts.

Yes, I think Sister IS feeling guilty.
She has visited my Mother twice in 40 years. 2016 + 2018.
Ironically, that is the ONLY pro she has going for her.
I do not wish to cause my sister pain.
I am only considering the question because it might assuage some of hers.
But at what cost?
As I continue to visit my Mother,
I would feel terrible keeping such a secret from her.

After reading your replies I see an almost unanimous majority favor keeping with my Mother's wishes.
And as for the compromise of letting my sister take a portion of the ashes.

I offered her that option. She rejected it,
prompting me to post the topic here.

ALSO I neglected to say in my original post that my Mother made
and paid for these exact arrangements long ago when in good health.

While I personally would not have chosen these options
I do not feel it is my right to change them,
even if it made ME feel better.


Hopefully there is plenty of time before I make a decision.

I welcome any further comments pro or con.
Thank you all again.

From your first post what your mother wanted was her ashes in the ocean NOT some in the ocean and some over there.
Since an offer of some of the ashes has already been made to your sister and yes declined the line your mother drew in the sand is now gone. See that line was based on hope and trust that her wishes would be followed rather than the wishes of others would be more important and override.
I hope that in her remaining time her mind will have periods of calm and comfort.

Our youngest daughter died 2 weeks ago. She requested before she died for her ashes to be scattered on her favorite place in the mountains in North Carolina.

We are having a family service in a park she used to like to go to at a lake near Knoxville, TN on April 06. Afterwards our grandsons will take her ashes to the place they used to go to in the mountains with their mother when they were little boys and spread her ashes. That's what she wanted and that's what she'll get come hell or high water!!

Give your mother the burial she requested. It's not your sister's funeral nor her place to change your mother's wishes.

"ALSO I neglected to say in my original post that my Mother made

To me this would be, though not legally binding, your mom's advance directive. Plus plenty of witnesses knowing what her final wishes were also. Your sister showing up only a few times in many years? Her opinion doesn't count as much.

Now, when it comes to the will (if any) and settling the estate, you may have to appease your sister more than you would like.

Since the offer to give your sister some ashes to bury was rejected, you need to honor your mother’s wishes and spread all of the ashes. That is what your mom wants and your sister should understand that. Her wanting to bury the ashes is just being selfish and inconsiderate of your mom. I’m not saying she is a bad person, just that she is letting her own wishes take precedence over your Mom’s wishes in an area that should be solely your moms department. Hopefully she will one day understand that you are not doing it to ignore her wishes or hurt her, but you are doing it out of love and respect for your mom. I pray you and your sister can be at peace with doing what your mom wants. In the end you have to do what you feel is right to be at peace with yourself.

More information now. I think this changes everything. The best I can offer now, is to INCLUDE the sister in the actual "spreading of the ashes". It's what your Mother wanted, irregardless of what your sister, or even you, wants/thinks, should be done. She (sister) either participates, or not; her loss, not yours. "Honor thy Mother and Father", it's one of the Ten Commandments. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Hi Chevrolet, Sorry for your loss and this troubling situation.

I live with a similar issue in that when my father died many years ago his Ashes were planted on my foster brother's farm and a tree planted (Not Blood relative). It was my Idea.

However, when my mother got terminal cancer about a decade later she expressly wanted to be buried in the Family cemetery that my fathers family are buried in. Not the one her mother and brother are buried in twenty miles away.

Her surviving maternal relatives were outraged and have loudly accused me of inventing this situation. In the weeks before she died my mother spelt out in absolute detail to me as her only competent son, and her executor exactly what she wanted.

I had to go to the current minister of the church where they were married and ask the lovely female minister to step aside and allow her local minister from a different town to preside. She had decided who she wanted as Pallbearers etc. She even insisted that I get a Funeral director out of retirement to do her funeral in a business he had sold. This took quite a bit of negotiating.

A few old busybodies and her sister had been attending her home in the last weeks of her life and they took it upon themselves to try and reorganise everything. They convinced my foster brother not call me down from the city when her time was near. I will never forgive or forget that action as long as I live. What sort of person would deny a mother in a coma the right to die with her son holding her hand?
Fortunately, an Aunt of mine called me but as you can imagine the situation was tense and I seriously considered telling the whole lot of them to get lost. I spoke at length with here local minister and he came around and sort of put a lid on the situation.

She took her last breath a few days later with me holding her hand and a room full of onlookers gawping on. It was a Thursday and that Saturday my foster brother rung up her lawyer to see what he would get. He was very politely but firmly told that once Probate was issued that would be a question he could ask her executor. Me.

This brings me to an important question in law and ethics.
Personally, the remaining ashes are not the person but there is something fundamentally wrong about splitting them up.
As a matter of law, I would expect that they form part of the estate and the decision lies with the executor of the will who is compelled by duty to carry out her wishes, written or oral.
If you are not the executor, in the absence of instructions the executor would be bound to listen to all submissions. If you want to reinforce your position then a simple affid davit recounting her wishes should hold sway.
Please be aware I am not a practising US lawyer.



It was also my mothers dying wish that ultimately Dad's ashes be uplifted from the farm and placed with her. Unfortunately, she did not tell my Foster Brother this, nor did he know he was not a beneficiary of either of my parents' wills.

Not surprisingly my Foster Brother was averse to this and no doubt it would have been confronting. So he flatly refused to comply. Given Dad's ashes were on his private property I probably own them but have no legal right to recover them.
Some of my uncles wanted to get up a posse and just go and take them. I suggested we uplift the ashes and spread them along the way and to the grave of my mother and that would neither be disrespectful or fail to meet both aspirations.
He flatly refused and we have only met once in the last 15 years.

So I have honoured all my Mothers wishes bar one. and that is the key issue.

As a sidebar, my true older brother is intellectually disabled and in full-time care. It was my parents wish that I have a life long role as his Guardian. So they left the entirety of their estate to me with a portion set aside to remain interest-bearing to support him and me in fulfilling that.

The law changed after my Father died and do that part of their wishes was no longer viable. So My mother, with My help and my Wife (accountant,) created a family trust with her lawyer to ensure this happened.
I asked her If I could have My Foster Brother as a minor beneficiary. She wouldn't have a bar of it as he had been married twice and had three children. So I finally got her permission to have him in as a named person and her lawyer confirmed this totally excluded his entourage from having any claim.

She also put very concise limits on what he could receive. "He'll just give the money to that fat lazy censored" was my Mother's exact way of expressing her view of his stay at home wife in private. So just before she got really sick she told him he would get a share.

As I was the Executor of her will and became the primary Trustee of her family trust. It was unfortunate that he took the advice of others and failed in his duty to call me when Mum was near death and refused to release Dad's ashes. He is adamant I have made this all up but My fathers and Mothers will both are a matter of public record. Financially he has shot his own feet off there as I had intended to underwrite him considerably more than the small amount of household effects he got.

I had restored a Tractor and Mum paid for it. We registered it so it was road legal and kept it in the family trust name. It was our wedding present to him. When Mum died he claimed I would come and take it back. So I Immediately transferred the title to him. What he didn't realise is that we had insured his life from accidental death through this. I would have been able to Give the full value of this to his kids. He never insured anything.

There is always a personal cost to this and from that time my maternal family is wholly estranged from me. No loss at all really. But the Guy I grew up with as my brother is gone. The busybodies have not stopped interfering and spreading malicious gossip through my wider family and inevitably gained some traction despite all these matters being public record.

You have to do the right thing by your Mother, whether they make that easy or not. My real brother's guardianship has cost me an enormous amount in legal fees and spurious time wasted through nearly twenty years. His funds and the entire estate is long gone. But because it was my Mothers and Fathers wish and I love him I will honour their wishes until I am no longer capable.

I am sure you are the sort of guy that will do the right thing, but I would recommend that you make your best endeavours to explain why this has to be.

Thanks for your reply Kiwi.
I'm sorry for your troubles as well.
Good to see most everything worked out.

I'm flying south tomorrow to visit my Mother
and plan to meet with officials Monday.
If all goes as planned,
her wishes will be followed
when the time comes.
Wednesday I'm driving up to
Tupelo for the auction.
I got 2 possibles but a lot of heavy hitters there so I'm probably dreaming.
Visiting folks Monday in Morgantown W.Va.
NEVER been there before.
Thanks again everyone,
I'll check in Tuesday when I get home.

Timing can be strange sometimes. Yesterday wife and I attended a Celebration of Life for a 90 year old woman we knew. Thought about you and your mom and how to handle end of life matters. Strange. Mel
