Son of Wrongly Cremated Woman Comes Forward
Annie Pearl Little, 82, died on Christmas Day. On the day of her funeral at McCall’s Bronxwood Funeral Home in the Bronx, the manager there called her only son, Donald Little.
“You need to come in early,” Mr. Little said he was told by the manager, Patricia Myers.
He did as instructed, and he said Ms. Myers informed him: “You’re going to have to have a closed casket. We cremated the wrong body. Your mother got cremated.”
“She said, ‘The other lady looked like your mother,’” Mr. Little said.
