Keeping a Body Cool

Some families have used ThermaFreeze Made in USA Reusable Ice Pack Sheets for Coolers, 10x15, 4x6 Cells - Long Lasting Ice Packs for Coolers, Reusable Ice Sheets. 

 

One Utah family explains what they did,
"One pack went under the head, one went under each shoulder blade, two side-by-side under the kidneys, and one over the abdomen. 

We traded them out every 6 hours or more, and they were still cold enough to remain there longer.

We kept our mother's body for almost 72 hours.  We had a celebration of life at our nearby church, without the body, then family came and just enjoyed the sweet spirit at home, until the mortuary sent their representatives out to pick up the body for a cremation."
