Billing for a line that is not longer in use

My father in law (who lived with us for over 16 years) passed away on 12/9/17.

He had his own in house land line and we are still getting a bill for over $200 even though the phone has not been used since early December. The line is not active and we cancelled it on 12/10/17. How many more bills are we going to receive in his name? The latest bill states that there was a charge of $28.91 for change in service request! Are you kidding me? I called back on 12/10/17 to cancel...and you also charge to have a deceased person's phone service cancelled? I am going to take our $300.00 per month cell phone service and go to Sprint. Enough of Verizon.
