For the residents and visitors of Boquete Panama
Do you mean Kay Lamberson, or is this someone else?
I am so sorry. I was writing this at 6:00 a.m. and was in a rush. Penny is correct. It is Kay Lamberson.
We are waiting for the receipt of the legal documents which will allow us to retrieve Kay' body from the morgue and have her buried here in Panama. It has been a frustrating process but we should be completed this week and we will then have a funeral Mass for Kay.
THREE WEEKS after the death of an American American woman who died in a traffic accident between David and Boquete, in Chiriqui, her body remains in the morgue, as no family members have appeared to claim it.
She was one of 26 road fatalities so far this year in the province of Chiriqui.
Her daughter contacted this forum. I emailed her with what I knew about Kay. Her name is Kim Lamberson Smith, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the link to her post. http://boquete.ning.com/forum/topics/kay-lamberson
I was told that someone from the embassy had contacted her, so how is it they have not located Kim? Can whoever is working with the embassy send them Kim's contact information?
I also sent her a message through Ning.
Here is the embassy contact who is supposed to be helping Kim.
Tania Escala at the US Consulate EscalaTS@state.gov
Thank you for your offers of help.
Yesterday, Kim sent us the power of attorney that will allow us to retrieve Kay's body from the morgue. The attorney (one of our parishioners) is working with us. She will call the morgue and let them know that we have the paper work. The American Embassy forms sent to Kim were not the documents that are required legally to retrieve the body, It is under control, Kim and I have talked 4 times. We will let Boquete.ning when the funeral service will be. Kay will be buried in Panama per her daughter's wishes.
can anyone help me find out how to get a tombstone made in Boquete or Dolega?
thanks. easiest way to reach me is call 6808-2061. i do whatsapp too.
Could you make this a new post? It hardly belongs with Kay's memorial announcement, which was over 2 years ago.
