Adding in my prayers for all.

I agree that the idea of dividing the girls' ashes just sounds wrong, and I do think the lock of hair in a locket would perhaps be a better solution for both parents.

Praying that the girls have already found peace with God, and that their grief-stricken parents may also find peace in their time.

Thy will be done.

Dee, I'm sure that the deacon was trying to be comforting, but scattering or keeping the remains with you is not permitted for Catholics (The U.S. Appendix to the Order of Christian Funerals, no. 417). You can find information with references here:

www.cuf.org/faithfacts/details_view.
as
p?ffID=49


(Many less-controversial Catholic sites gave the same information, but without the external references.)

Hugs,

Valerie

I just read this... what a terrible tragedy. I can't even begin to imagine the suffering the parents are going through! I will be remembering the family in my prayers.

talk to the deacon after Mass today as long as there is a service and the body is blesssed what happens to the ashes is not the church concern because the soul is is gone from the body and what happens to it happens

I am praying this father has compassion and let the mom bury her two girls

How absolutely horrific! Keeping this family in prayers.

A note regarding the girls' remains - if the girls are Catholic, cremation is acceptable provided all the ashes are interred together. It is unacceptable for a Catholic to have their ashes scattered to the wind or divided in any way. If the mother is Catholic, she has Cannon Law in her favor - she should consult with her priest. If however the family is not Catholic, the "rules" do not apply.

I really like Valerie's suggestion of a lock of hair in a locket. This way, both parents might have a set of lockets with hair and the girls may be buried and rest in peace.

Praying for the family. Perhaps she could give him a locket with a lock of each of the girls' hair.

I got home at 10:30 from a beautiful event I went to this evening. It was on "Growing in Friendship with God" It was so lovely.
So sad to read of this tragedy. I'm sure many of us will keep this Family in our prayers.
I agree with you, CJ. It does not seem right to divide the ashes of the girls. It's so sad when you hear things like this. Much prayer is needed for strengthening in Faith, and for God to help them through this tragedy.
I hope you are healing well DEE, from your burns.
May God bless each of you in your tomorrow.
Hugs & Prayers, Janis emoticon

Oh dear. How absolutely tragic!

May God have mercy on the girls' souls, and welcome them into His Heavenly Home.

And I pray, too, for the intentions of their dear mother. May God comfort her and her ex, and allow them to come to an agreement about their poor daughters' remains. Something about someone getting "half" of the girls just seems so wrong. May God's will be done.
