Device payment buyout charge

I had to cancel a phone line/servuce because the owner that particular line passed away but Verizon is still charging me $588.72 for a "device buyout." Why am I paying for a phone that I sent back and no one can use? So you get the phone plus almost $600? I'm confused and really need help understanding this.

Hi, there! I send my condolences on the passing of your family member, Brit30. Seeing a device payment charge when you sent the phone back can most certainly be alarming! Your Verizon Wireless bill is the last thing we'd want on your mind during this hard time. We're here to help! Was the phone sent back via mail, or taken into a store? Did the device have any liquid or physical damage? How long ago was the device sent back?

Hi Kia,

First, thank you for your condolences. 

I sent the phone back via UPS on February 10 or 11th and the return center in Fort Worth, TX received it on the 14th.

The had no damage and was in perfect working condition.
