Back before Covid, I represented the parents in a will contest case against the wife of the deceased. It was a sham marriage but you know how people like to fight over minute stuff. The deceased had been cremated and the parties were fighting over who was entitled to the ashes. I had the box of ashes in my office. It was getting ridiculous. I found a big urn with mini urns and ordered it. Scooped them out a couple spoons and nipped it in the bud. I still have leftover ashes for refills.
