Default help! not sure what to do. Will they let him go to a funeral?

So on top of the fact that my boyfriend just got sentenced on Tuesday, only the week prior his baby brother died. He jumped off a bridge into a river to have some fun with his friends and unfortunately drowned. They were waiting on having a funeral because they were unable to find the body.

Well, today, I spoke to his family and they found the body. The incident happened in PA but they are having the funeral in NYC. However, the body needs to be cremated and sent back to the city so they are not sure of the time limit.

They really want my BF to be at the funeral. I have no idea what to do. As I was on the phone with his family he called me and left a message saying he was finally at Rikers and that he would call me later.

I know this news is going to upset him and I'm worried he's going to go nuts in there. His family suggested I call the island and ask them to have a priest inform him but I don't even know if that is possible/ who to even begin to call.

Also, do you think they would let him go to the funeral or no?

any information would be great.

Call the NYC Department of Correction Information Line at:
718-546-1500 (open from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm)
Follow the instructions on the phone to be able to get to talk to a live person. They are usually very helpful with giving any answers to questions or problems that the inmates' loved ones have.
