Permission to do Ordinances
I have a friend who died in 2001. I personally helped her discover her birth family in 1995 and was there when they emphatically said they wanted nothing to do with her. Her adoptive family also abandoned her. She was baptized a member of the church in 1992 and I met her when we lived for ten years in Cleveland, Ohio. She was a sister that I helped on many occasions with her search for family, with life essentials etc. She was not able to attend the temple while she was alive because of health and other reasons.
She never married. She had no children. Will she really have to wait another 110 years until no one who knew her exists and there is no one to see that her temple work gets done?
She is already baptized.
I know that no one from her family attended her funeral. I know that several members of the church family did attend. That is the only witness I have to verify that she did not have any living members who cared about her (remember her birth family rejected her) .
We wish we could do more for you as you have a very righteous desire to help your friend. You have likely read the article titled: Can I Request Proxy Ordinances for a Friend? Nevertheless we will enter a link here for your review.
This article reminds us that, "If your deceased friend has no close living relatives that can provide written permission, then a request cannot be granted."
We would love to give you better news.
