Grow up folks, this is a part of life and we all need to have more people involved to have better competition, so the funeral prices will go down. What a racket they have, gouging you at the end of life. 8546

How stupid can people be with statements like "I'm just concerned that's going to have a negative effect on the kids growing up here," Are the kids going to be in the funeral home watching the bodies burn? Do these people think that the bodies are going to be burned in the middle of the street where everyone can see? Do they think ashes are going to be falling from the sky and their kids are going to mistake them for snowflakes and try to catch them with their tounges? I hate to tell these people but kids are not stupid, they know that people die and that some of them choose to have their bodies burned. If your kids are very young and don't understand death, don't tell them what the building is and they will won't know the difference. Just because some people, in a community, are creeped about death don't make your entire neighborhood look stupid too.

Trust me, folks...you could actually stand-on-the-roof...next to the chimney...and N E V E R be able to tell that a body was being burned inside. The jet-like flames used are so quick and powerful,(they) totally incenerate anything in just a matter of two or less minutes. Listen, when I say Anything...I mean A N Y T H I N G.
Just to get the jet-burners turned-on and ready takes a short while, but boy, when you say "Go",you can hold a second-hand timer to watch.
How do I know all of this? Well, since 1989, I've worked for two tulsa funeral homes, as well as a Tulsa crematory.
Oh yes, another thing: It's clean.

The people who are concerned about the negative effects this will have on the neighborhood children are just afraid. In reality, their negative reactions to the business will be what the kids pick up on. The concerned citizens are actually just fearful. Are they afraid of lingering spirits or that it's just a quick trip around the corner when their time comes?

I don't think it's going to have a negative effect on the kids growing up. I remember when telling my 6 year son that his grandfather had past away he asked "Well are they going to bury him or burn him"?

The only way this will have a negative effect on a kid is when they hear their uptight drama saturated parents make a big deal about it. A kid could care less. Just let the man do business.

People make me laugh! The thing that makes property values go down is the people in the neighborhood. Poor guy follows the law and then has to meet with people who are afraid of the boogie man. He's nicer than me - I would just tell them that I followed the law, the process meets Federal environmental regulations, and I don't have time or inclination to try to educate close minded people.

Good Grief, Glenpool!!! It's not like you are going to smell burning bodies, etc. What are you doing? "Smothering" your kids instead of "mothering" them. Truly kids are definitely smarter than the parents and know what the heck is going on. Quit living in a vacuum. Do you also have a wooden stake or silver cross to ward off and kill vampires? I think you people need some education. Your kids "quality of life" is not going to be hurt by the crematory. Worry much more about all the meth labs that probably surround your area.

I'm a resident of Glenpool and live in the neighborhood behind it. I could care less if they build it. I've dealt with this funeral home and they are good people.

There's always someone in every neighborhood that needs something to gripe about, so don't throw all Glenpool residents under the bus :-)

These are the same people who feel the need to wrap EVERYONES kid in bubble wrap upon conception. You people need to get over it. Life does not revolve around your belly button. I think I'll go do a strange Pagan dance and sacrifice some chickens in their neighborhood. Bet they will forget all about the crematory. Oggi boogi boogi.

Maybe he just needs to take the word crematory off of his sign and the residents that are upset will just think he has a really nice fireplace. Or maybe they can tell their kids he has a nice fireplace or better yet, get a grip and face reality that we all live and we all die and when we die, something has to be done with the body that is now useless. Take them to church so they can learn some facts!
