Weary of Politics. Normal Family Fun. Mom Cremated on BBQ,Kids Cashing Checkson October 16, 2008 at 1:57 am
It would appear that a good time was had by all, judging from the smile on this BBQ lover’s face.
As promised, now for some normalcy amid fever pitch of election 2008. Soon, you can also ponder what happened to that nice old lady who used to live next door.
In lovely Corning,CA the family of a recently deceased 84-yr-old woman, Ramona Allmond, gathered ’round a makeshift BBQ and cremated the dear old soul. She would have enjoyed the backyard party,I presume.
The brains of the group seem to have been the deceased woman’s daughter and grandson. They were arrested Sunday on suspicion of embezzlement, elder abuse, and depositing of a body without a permit. That is how a family picnic can go to hell in one hurry! Got a few minutes? Scribble a will and have it notarized is my suggestion.
Allmond’s loving daughter, 50-yr-old Kathleeen and Allmond’s grandson, Tony Ray, 30, said the woman
had died in December of natural causes, where they left her body on the bedroom floor for a week before cremating her remains in their new makeshift backyard fire pit.
The two, who obviously weren’t thinking in their tremendous grief, continued to collect her monthly retirement checks. Hold onto yourself, the checks are worth more than $25,000 each month!
Ramona was one lucky grandmother,and must have been the envy of her friends. Many elderly folks are shuffled off to homes, but Ramona’s daughter and grandson no doubt begged for her to come and live with them!
An inspector allows that they may have been heeding her wishes to be cremated, but apparently her son wasn’t aware of it. He grew suspicious about his mother’s whereabouts, which prompted the
investigation, which then prompted the trip to jail, where daughter and son both await arraignment on Thursday for the above charges. Of course if the cause of death is found to be something other than natural causes, they could well have a nice long-term care facility to stay in themselves. It sounds safer than staying with relatives. There! Bet you’re ready to return to the election debate.
I know I am, and I don’t feel quite so badly about being childless anymore.
