I've never seen that, but as expensive as burials are, sounds like a good idea.
Do you not read the paper? It is in there about everyday. I can't understand, i would find it very rude to tell the public that this person is poor. Don't most funeral homes perform some funerals every year, as a service to the community for the cost only? I guess C/S can't afford to do that.

no one can afford to do "business" for free.. why dont you donate some money to the families that cant pay their funeral bill.. or just go around to all the funeral homes and make anonymous payments... cant afford it?!?

No I don't guess you all can afford to bury people for free! At least I wouldn't share it with the whole town, on who can pay and who can't. I quess the word RESPECT don't mean anything to you.

The families write the obituary, or at least tell the funeral homes what to put in them. The funeral home is not telling the public anything about the deceased. And no, I do not work for any funeral home.

alot of families have trouble coming up with cash. most funeral homes want at least half up front. instead of people sending hundreds of dollars in flowers and other gifts why is bad to help pay for the services. ever seen the words "in lieu of" in an obit? in means you can do other things besides send flowers (making donations to a charity or church.. help the family with some bills..etc)

Well why does it not say a Charity? No it is obvious the funeral home needs the money! Why donn't it say-- "the family can not pay the bill, and the funeral home won't help them out, so---in lieu of flowers send all of your funds to help the funeral home. It can't afford to help this poor family, so send us the CASH now??????This spells-NO REPSPECT!!!!

So you are saying it is disrespectful for a business to make a living...that because someone can't pay, then just forget about paying it. Just let that business take the loss..

To bad folks decide to not claim their own blood at death. They would rather point fingers at anyone but themselves to pay the bill. How sad that You would expect folks other than family to take care of You. Sounds like Your a goverment leach. Oh yeah I said it, a everybody owes me somthing type. How very sad that when You die that folks roll their eyes and cant remember you ever doing the right thing.

You can get cremated for 500.00. Your dead so might as well go that way and keep the bugs from eating u.

Funeral homes are like any other business providing a necessary service or product: they can charge whatever they want, because people have to have what they're selling. Add to that list gas companies, grocery stores, internet providers*, health care providers, insurance companies, and government.

It is just another case of the rich sticking it to the poor. Except now the middle class is dwindling to the point we can't support the robbery.

*I say internet service is a necessity in this day and age if we want an informed and reasonably educated public, because the news and education is biased. And it shouldn't cost over $70 a month in rural areas where broadband is the only option.

Aside from maybe disagreeing with the necessity of internet access, don't you agree that it is now the new American way for businesses to price-gouge the public ?

Cremation is the way to go, and much more humane, if you think about what happens to the body as it is embalmed and lays in the ground. Some people are taking the body right to the crematorium, but I think it's best to use a funeral home, too. They can send the death notices to the papers and oversee the service at the church. Locally that runs around $2500-3000. There is no need for people who have little money to add to their burden. This is my own opinion. I'm not offended if others don't share it.

We used them couple months agao and was very disappointed. It is not the same as it was even 5-10 years ago. I would definitely recommend using anyone but Colboch-Price. They lack the organization and professionalism they were founded on. Just my opinion.

When my mom passed away three years ago, the cost at Colboch Price was over $9000. We were limited to selection of a casket that was "in stock". We didn't pick out anything fancy (that wasn't my mom). My dad was upset that the cost was so expensive. When my dad died last year, he had said he wanted to use Christian-Sells instead. The cost was a third of Colboch Price and we got better service, the exact casket we wanted was ordered and there the next day, they even made copies of all the picture files of the pictures they scanned in for us.

Christian Sells is in such an ugly area of town. Broome and Colboch Price are better located. Did you really get a funeral from Christian Sells for $3000?
