To Elizabeth:

Seems like the established cryonics organizations are afraid of helping you,
because they are afraid that you later will come back and attack them or sue
Maybe in a year or so you or your family will regret having spent the money
on freezing him, and complain to the media, or sue them, that is what they
are afraid of.

I am not afraid of that.   It can easily be worked around by setting up a
new cryonic facility in your name, that you pay for,  so that no existing
entity can be sued or harmed.

But I do call upon you to sit back and talk to your mother and sister,
and spend some time listening to all that advice you not to freeze him,
before you make your decission as to what to do.
