A funeral home is denying me visitation to my deceased parent but granted visitation to my sibling who paid the funeral home cost. The funeral home's excuse is that I should have came to visit with my sibling. I haven't seen my deceased parent in a long time and my parent made a request to see me before dying. I'm suffering a lot of emotional damages due to the action of the funeral home which I believe amounts to negligence and discrimination. Can I sue based on implied contract that a funeral home shouldn't deny visitation rights to an immediate relative regardless of which child paid for the funeral home? A deceased person isn't personal property that would belong to the person paying for the funeral home, in my opinion. Would I have a good cause of action?
