(Newser) – An Ohio woman is upset with a Kentucky funeral home after she opened up her son's funeral urn to find his ashes placed inside a Walmart bag. Nancy Bronner of Amelia tells WCPO-TV that she opened the urn after the teenager's death last September. Bob McDaniel of the McDaniel Funeral Home in Dry Ridge, Ky., says the family asked to divide the ashes but provided containers that didn't seal and had no bags, so he used what he had. The home did its best to conceal the store name and logo, he adds.
