On December 9th in New Orleans Magnolia Funeral Home will go before the Louisiana State Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors to answer why they cremated the wrong body without family permission, coroner permission, or state permits.If you want a cheap funeral be careful you may receive the wrong person back!You can verify this by calling 18885089083.Consumer BEWARE

I heard about this also. I have to believe coy will be heavily fined and funeral home closed. Coy must think he is above the law and even more so not concerned with the deceased. The pure arrogance alone will prevent me and my family from ever doing business with magnolia funeral home. I also believe they are doing the old bait and switch, no one can do a funeral for 1295.00.does he really think we believe his constant bull crap.SHAME ON YOU MR. GREMILLION!!

He will be fined, pay the fine and continue to offer a less expensive alternative for the families of the deceased.

I think he is doing a great service for the people of Rapides Parish/Vernon and other surrounding parishes. Mr. Gremillion offers a much less expensive funeral than Hixson, Rush or Kramer. Alot of people do not have Insurance and can't afford to bury their family. Coy offers these people a way to help them in their time of need. He has all the same services that the other funeral homes offer, just at a cheaper rate. Who doesn't want to save money????

I understand people make mistakes and I hope the state does not close this funeral home. It would be a shame!!!!!!

Are you sure that is the same Magnolia Funeral Home? The one in Alexandria has only one location.

I've known Coy casually since he and several other individuals throughout the state tried to buck the Funeral Industry and open retail casket stores 15 years ago. We all failed to prevail and were shut down but Coy was not broken. He remodeled his building, hired an interim funeral director, enrolled in mortician school, obtained a license and has been a thorn in the side of his competitors and the state funeral board ever since.

Coy is a business man who saw a niche in a market in which he could provide consumers with affordable dignified options and make a reasonable profit. I have been to legislative hearings in Baton Rouge with Mr. Gremillion,. This has been a mission for him for many years.

I wonder what it is like to work at a funeral home. I think you would develop really good people skills because you would have that interaction with people all the time. I think it would be a good entry level job to have while you are going to school because you could acquire a lot of different skills that could help you in school.

Noddie can be cool when he wants to be. Just ignore or do the opposite with all his political choices.

Ohhhh....you cut me to the quick.
I supported Kerry....and lost
I supported Wagner.....and lost.
I supported Terrel....and won.
I'm supporting Hilton.....can't lose.
My decision has nothing to do with "good ole boy politics, dead heads or alleged corruption". WEH has been the most successful and progressive Sheriff Rapides has ever had.

Yup. I thought you'd like that. I voted for Kerry and Wagner twice. I guess it's true what they say about a broken clock being right two times a day!

Discussing politics would be much more productive if folk simply agreed to disagree.
