Sticker Shock Stuns Body Donors In Florida: From The Tampa Tribune, 16 Jan 2005 [cached]
Although three-fourths of the states pick up the tab for body donation, Florida pays nothing, said Lynn Romrell, longtime executive director of the Anatomical Board of the State of Florida, the Gainesville-based clearinghouse for bodies.
"The state provides no funding to defray costs," said Romrell, also a 30-year professor at the University of Florida's medical school.
Romrell said the state receives 400 to 500 cadavers a year, about half of what it needs.
Romrell said memorial ceremonies are important for University of Florida medical students, as well.
Students Pay Tributes
"Some of the students go back to the cadaver lab, after the tables are closed, and place flowers on the tables," he said.

Dr. Lynn Romrell, director of Florida's Anatomical Board, doesn't understand why these bodies can be donated under the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act and not be subject to the laws that govern burials and cremations.
He acknowledges, however, that the process of donating under this act does gives the organization, as well as the client, more control.When a person makes a donation, that designation prevents the intervention of family members.
Because cryonics is treated differently than burials or cremations, Romrell says, there isn't much oversight of these organizations.When donations are made under the Anatomical Gift Act, it's up to states to determine when or if there will be any oversight.Aside from a few states that require bodies to be cremated in a specified amount of time, most states have few laws governing donations.
A 1993 meeting of the CryoCare Foundation illustrates some of the obstacles facing cryonics.The foundation was established to offer cryopreservation with assistance from BioPreservation, which provided remote standby, transport, perfusion and cooldown capability, and CryoSpan, which managed long-term maintenance of stored patients.
