Great-aunt Ethel on ice…for three months so far
The man who has held up his great-aunt’s cremation for nearly three months believes the 105-year-old has spoken to him from beyond the grave asking to be buried instead, a relative said.
James Pollak, who lives in Israel and objects to cremation on religious grounds, thinks Ethel Baar’s soul is “crying out to him to save her,” his sister told the Daily News yesterday.
Baar’s body has been in a cooler inside the Gramercy Park Memorial Chapel since September while Pollak attempts to overturn her wish to be cremated.
A judge will attempt to resolve the dispute next month.
