A number of years ago, funeral director Steve Kleinberg was contacted by an elderly woman confined to a nursing home with an unusual request: she wanted her late husband disinterred [removed] from his final resting place of many years, cremated, and his ashes buried next to their beloved pet's at Hartsdale Pet Cemetery.

Steve contacted Hartsdale unsure if he could even honor her request, only to learn that somewhere between 600 - 700 humans were already buried with their pets. He visited the elderly woman to get the necessary authorizations signed, completed the disinterment and cremation, and delivered her husband's cremains to the cemetery.

Her wish upon her own passing was to join her late husband and cherished pets. Wish granted, may they rest in peace.
