I am late coming to this party but it still bothers me a lot. My mom and dad bought Neptune contracts in San Jose, CA in the 1970’s. They liked the part about being buried at sea. My mom died in February of 1981. It was later disclosed in the newspaper that she was a part of the group that had been disposed of in the city dump. My dad was offered a chance to participate in a law suit which he declined. As if that could make up for the images he would always have. When my dad died I declined using the contract he had purchased. In his memory, I didn’t want anything to do with the Neptune Society in his final event. That was probably foolish on my part and writing this is the only satisfaction I will ever have over what happened to my parents. Buyer beware! I advise against going this route.
