Performing Temple Work for a Personal Friend Who Died in 1983

Hi, Not sure where to go here. I lost my best friend in 1983. I have felt the need to perform his temple work for some time so I looked up the requirements, reached out to his sister in Texas and obtained permission to do his temple work along with his fathers. I had verbal permission and in addition to that, she also said that her mother gave my mother permission to do Jasons work back in 1983(I was unaware). She sent me a specific email stating we had spoken and she gave the birth and death dates of her brother and her father along with permission for me to take both names to the temple. I then requested to do the temple work and submitted the message from his sister. To my surprise, I was given permission to do the father's work but denied to do the work for my friend. I pleaded with them to reconsider but again was denied and eventually they blocked my ability to message them(Familysearch.org). I have completed the work for his father and now need to know what to do to get permission from the church to do the work for my friend.
