I'm sorry for you & your family's loss, FM. My situation is prob different than yours. Being the only surviving child, to settle my mother's estate (in NY), I had to get everyone's DC sent to California. It was some time after the fact, though. Had I been in NY, I may have gotten them sooner going to the hall of vital records (?). I downloaded the forms, filled them out, enclosed a check etc & it took over a month. The only thing I can think of is to check w a vital records dept in your state. Hope that helps. Again, my condolences to you & yours.

Sometimes you can talk to the coroner directly and tell him your situation I did that when my dad died as my brother lived in Oregon and I lived in New Mexico my dad lived in Georgia the coroner came thru for us. You live in a large city but it's worth a try. You would be surprised what you can get if you just ask and explain your situation.

I am so sorry for what you and your mom are going through. I had to take care of things when my grandmother, mother and father died. When mom died dad had a heart attack. So he was in intensive care when I buried mom. If it wasn't for my 5 children being there for me I don't think I would have made it. Thank God for our familys.

My thoughts and prayers go out to your BIL. May it help you in some way to know that all of us here at DC are sharing in your pain.

Stacy, I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm really at a loss for words. You can count on my prayers as he goes through this.

Fisher's Mom, I pray everything is resolved very soon.
