Owners never received pet's ashes

Some may not want to read this. I don't understand how the cemetary owners could do such a thing when these pet owners are already hurting.:mad:

Cathy,to be honest,I don't really believe the ashes grieving owners recieve is always that of their pets.
I am certain there are many honest businesses out there,but probably equally as many that are not:mad:
I buried 4 of my cats in my backyard,still talk to them at times,,were I not able to do that,I would have them buried at the HS pet-cemetary.

I think that most places in MI where i live are pretty honest. We have one company that gives each animal a metal tag #. Then everything has that # on it so that yiu know your getting YOUR animals ashes back. Where I live you can not burie an animal. (I do anyways) but if your caught its a fine and you have to dig him/her up! Also we have ALOT of people that never pick up there animals ashes after the fact. i think its sad but i understand at the same time.

so i fail to understadn what happened to the crematorium.... they just have all of their employees up and decide to not come in one day?? anyone talk to them? no one said they were a dead end? had no comment, change in personal (besides someone not affiliated with the newspaper guessing they had a change in managment?? IIRC)
