    Sometimes I think about long lost childhood friends, etc. and I google them just to see how they are doing. This one girl was my friend until like 10-15 years ago. I kind of got creeped out by her jerk/cheapskate husband at that time and we lost touch. A few times in the past I did try to search for her and I could only ever find listings related to her husband. I did email those and I am sure he never passed on the message. Couldn't ever find her on the usual social media sites.

    So today I googled her again and found her obituary. She died a year ago. Of course I feel awful and it gives no details of what happened and it asks for money.

    :bigcry:

    you tell me! I've never seen that before: I know the guy was a damn cheapskate so maybe he is trying to profit.. or is it possible she had high hospital bill?

    no, last time I spoke to her they were living in FL.
    it seems that they had just bought a house in NC and she died 3 weeks later!
    if I go that way I will visit her grave

    How ode was she when she died?
    Were the donations earmarked for some kind of medical research? Perhaps what she died from?

    So sorry, how very sad.

    Find your peace somehow. Be it investigating more on what happened? Visiting her burial site?
    Letting a balloon go in her honor sometime?
    ^ I know that sounds corny, but releasing your feelings in any form helps. And seeing them float away in the sky is a very physical manifestation of that and kind of comforting.

    no it didn't mention anything - no "suddenly". no "after a long illness".. no nothing. Did not name her family members even. You know sometimes they say "survived by..."

    yes when I knew her, she had a toddler son.
    but the obituary said "children" so there seem to be others by now.

    Uncertified death certificates should be a matter of public record. But would cost money. might be easier if you had any friends in common to just ask one of those people? Or if she had brother or sister who would remember you?

    she was an only child. I might be able to write to her parents if they are still alive.
    There is an other girl from our school who was also friends with her.
    I ran into her several years ago and gave her her address. Hopefully they got in touch.
    I sent her a fb message today asking if she knew anything.

    Yeah good idea! what else is weird is that I have the contact info of a few people who I know are dead still in my phone/address book. Why don't I take it out?

    Death Certs are public records, but most likely, they have to be requested in person. That would be really creepy. Plus, I believe that the cause of death may be redacted unless an official copy is requested by an eligible person...read that somewhere.

    Update - Here we go

    Florida


    Step 1 - Determine your eligibility to receive a death certificate.

    In Florida, anyone may order a Florida Death Certificate "Without cause of death".
    A Florida Death Certificate "With Cause of Death" is confidential by Florida Law and may only be issued to:

    -The decedent's spouse, parent, child, grandchild, or sibling (if 18 years of age or older).
