Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What is your specific question for us? If you were the surviving spouse, you have the right to make all decisions about the body and if the sisters in law prevented that and caused this severe emotional trauma, they can be sued for fraud and their conduct in this matter.
