I think that there is no such funeral home that is "cheap".... There will be NO funeral home that only charges in the hundreds. And if you or your choose to not pre arrange your funeral... It's gonna cost alot more due to random wants of the customer. If you prearranged your funeral everything is already ordered, and bought. So there is no hesitation of the funeral and(or) cremation.

Folks, I have to say that by reading these posts, I am floored at the lies that have been told. I am in the funeral busines but not in Warren County. I know personally each funeral home there. At NO funeral home will you be treated badly. Now you may not be allowed to have an expensive funeral and walk away on a hand shake but every family at each funeral home will be treated with kindness. Funeral Homes are VERY expensive to operate. I am guessing Kirby's operation cost is over $30,000.00 a month. A hearse new cost us $120,000.00 a 5 year old hearse cost $50,000.00. Everyone expects nice furniture, clean cars, and updated facilities. Why would anyone expect to have a funeral and not have to pay for it when it is purchased? Have you ever noticed there are no companies that offer financing for funerals? In the past there have been and they fail, because nobody pays. Kevin is a good man that goes far and beyond the call of duty for the families he serves. In addition it is your choice when making a funeral or funeral home decision. And it is a business. The bills have to be paid. Financing a casket for you sounds good but the casket companies DO NOT finance for us. NOTICE: MOMMA & DADDY ARE GOING TO DIE. SAVE YOUR MONEY OR BUY INSURANCE. Then the funeral home nor you will have any financial worries. And there will be less complaints on having to pay for funeral service.

When the hospital says at 12 pm which funeral home do you want us to call, you don't really feel that you can say could you put dad in the fridge until morning so I can call around for the best price. So I said call Kirby because that's all I've every really known. They knew my family well two, we were told they would do nothing for him until it was paid, if we wanted to transfer him somewhere else is was $2500 on top of the $800 we already owed them for picking him up that had to be paid then. We had no choice to chose cremation because we could not afford any other option, which was extreemly distressing for my grandmother. And after all of that we had to pay an extra $100 for the cardboard box to put the ashes in, or we could have just been handed a plastic bag with them. I'm sorry but I left there feeling far worse about how we were treated there then I did the passing of my father.

Kevin Kirby would give the shirt off his back to help somebody in need. I've seen him do it numerous times. He donates thousands and thousands to local charities and goes above and beyond what is expected from a coroner. He wasn't "given" this business-- he started with a basic foundation.. Expanded and grew from one funeral home to 3 plus a crematory and much more. Not given, but paid for and worked for.. Many and many endless days, year after year. He paid his dues. It's funny how hard workers who succeed are always scrutinized in the public eye. I'm sure mostly by the 'unemployed by choice' population.
Lastly, yes you have to pay for a funeral. Just because there's been a death doesn't mean you get it for free! Because you are cold doesn't mean you use the electric company and heat your house then not pay the bill! A lady being called out of the funeral to pay a bill is BS. Their employees are the most compassionate people. Come on people, educate yourself a little more before making senseless and false accusations on people who have helped bowling green and surrounding areas during a time of need.

Folks you have health ins and you may not get sick, and you have car ins you may not have a wreck, you have homeowners ins and your house may never burn down. But you dont have life ins when its guaranteed you ARE going to die. Do not leave rhis burden to your family. Be responsible take care of this now and your family will not be faced with these problems. Funeral homes are a business, dying isnt cheap. They have to pay for their building, their hearsts, rheir employees salaries, and their inventory. Caskets vaults etc. I have lost many loved ones and entrusted them to Kirby. They have never been anyrhing but professionals. Yes their higher, but you get what you pay for. The 500-800 I would have saved going somewhere else wasnt worth it. Knowing things would be exactky what I asked for and done with class and dignity.

dying costs nothing....hospitals bills do and funeral homes DO rip people off. I understand they need to make money but don't emotionally manipulate someone when someone they love has just died. You don't have to get a vault for instance but they will make you feel guilty if you don't.
