What’s the remedy?

Someone called asking if we could help because she was upset about how her family handled a relatives remains upon death. She was surprised when I started asking questions, in particular about what remedy she sought. There was definitely no undoing what had already been done.

Even if the thing were illegal it would take a lot of money to go to court, and then what would the court do?

Of course, the answer within our judicial system is typically money. And it can make us realize how inadequate that can be. We might spend our whole lives worrying about money and having enough, and then you hear about a multi-million dollar payout for a wrongful death and take a moment to realize how much more valuable your loved ones are to you than money will ever be.
