FSNFH Ask the Expert Question: shipping bodies
I now live in Port Huron but my wife is buried in the National Cemeraty in Bushnell Fl. I would like to know if there is a funeral home that ships bodies so when I die I will be with her. Paul

You situation is not uncommon. Bodies are transport often from one city to another and from one state to another. In fact, there are companies that specialize in this kind of transportation. However, these companies usually work with the funeral homes and not the individuals. So you will need to determine where you need a funeral home. If you plan on services such as a visitation in Port Huron, the funeral home there can help coordinate the arrangements with the funeral home and cemetery in Bushnell. If you are not planning any services in Port Huron, the funeral home in Bushnell can help coordinate the transportation and burial from Michigan to Florida.
