affirm that I have full legal authority to direct the cremation of the decedent,
and agree to hold harmless and indemnify against any loss or liability including, but not limited to, costs, reasonable attorney’s fees and appellate costs incurred by Saint Michael Cemetery, or any of its agents, by reason of this authorization, including the failure to properly identify the decedent and/or the disposition of the cremated remains. I understand that the cremated remains will be placed in an urn or proper receptacle. If any urn or receptacle selected and provided by the undersigned for the receipt of the cremated remains is insufficient or incapable of receiving the remains, Saint Michael Cemetery is authorized to place the cremated remains in any container deemed by Saint Michael Cemetery to be appropriate.
x A heart pacemaker can be explosive when subjected to the high temperatures of the cremation chamber. If such a device exists, I have
instructed the funeral director or any other person(s) responsible for the preparation of the decedent for cremation to remove it from the decedent prior to the cremation. I also acknowledge and agree that in the event of my failure to notify the funeral director or any others responsible for the removal of such a device, I will be liable for any damages to the crematorium, or injury to crematorium personnel.
x Due to the nature of the cremation process, any personal possessions or valuable materials (such as dental gold, jewelry, body prosthesis) that
are left with the decedent and not removed from the casket or cremation container will be destroyed during cremation. If not destroyed, it will be recycled or otherwise disposed of by Saint Michael Cemetery.
