    So my mom passed away August 2013 (i was 16)we had her cremated and buried, but with all the grief and shock of her death we just did a normal burial and never had the chance to even think about keeping the ashes. The thought never came to me until about a month after her death. Unfortunately this is something I think about often and I ve been very upset about not keeping her ashes and I regret it every day. There was nothing I wanted more than to dig up her ashes (as terrible as that sounds) but I never knew how to go about it until I got to the point I m at now of googling it. Better late then never I guess! I always thought about it as something that shouldn t be done, you should never dig up a grave as it s disrespect and other things, which is also very hard because we had her buried over my pops casket. But like I said, I googled exumption and tried to get as much info as I could but I m honestly wondering if anyone else has ran into this issue or has had a similar experience.
