Dr. Allen Cusack of Cusack Mortuary just emailed me:

Great News!!

The medical examiner’s office for Volusia County approved the cremation at 11:26 a. m. Like I said, it wouldn’t take long once we had a doctor’s signature. The delay has been Dr. Peele as everyone else has been ready to do our duties. The cremation has begun and we will work towards getting your mother to you as early as tomorrow. The death certificate(s) we will also mail out to you.

I replied to him at 9:55 AM:

Thank you sincerely, Allen.

I miss her so much.

Then at 10:21 AM he replied to me with:

You are more than welcome. I truthfully want to get her home to you in the physical manner. She will always be with you in spirit and in memory.
