This is the facebook post:

After over 100 years of service to the community we are please to announce that Higginbotham Funeral Service has been sold. Mr. & Mrs. Clell Cox of Pocahontas has purchased the business from the Higginbotham Family. Starting today Cox-Higginbotham Funeral Homes begin serving the families of our area. Darrin Pinkston, Seth & Jessie Simpson, Zach Allen, and Letha Hufford will remain on staff continuing the high level of service which has been our hallmark these past two and a half years. Thank you for your continued support and trust in us. This will in no way interrupt our business. Should you have any questions please don't hesitate to telephone us.

How can it be a high level of service when Pinkston and Simpson have been fined by the state board and told not to act as a funeral director or as an embalmer. Also is this not the same Cox that was very good friends with the Mrs. several years ago. The truth is the truth regardless of how you pain it. Some ole, same ole. Check the public filings with the circuit clerk and see what I mean. See who really is in charge.

Mr House, must you take the opportunity to try and bash your competition? This is a trashy website to begin with and then you jump on the bandwagon to downplay your competitions business decisions in an attempt to gain business. Very sad! Go back to commenting on the other threads as you have been doing and leave your competitor alone. By the way, did Ricky give you permission to be on the computer?

Regardless of what the state board charged darrin and seth, the level of service and respect since Darrin, Zach, Seth, and Jessie began working there has been evident by many families I've talked to, Darrin has his license in Alabama. I wouldn't blame him for not wanting to associate his license with that place. the ownership papers were signed monday. The higginbothams no longer have any control over the funeral home.

I think Cox and House are friends. I have seen them together at different times.

Is there any reason they should not be friends. All business owners should be friends and work together for a better Walnut Ridge.

MJ Higginbotham still owns the building, equipment, and insurance company. I worked there and I can tell you the workers there are real unusual and yes they are unlicensed and are paying a fine.

It's hard to hold a license in any state when you are a convicted felon!

Not licensed in Alabama, either.

You just professed your ignorance. You have to be licensed in the state to be a Funeral Director and to be an Embalmer.

The board should have followed through with the charges the first time they were reported for their actions back in 2009.

Cox fired his lady embalmer the other day. She fired everyone else that got fired and now she has gotten the ax, according to a past employee. Strange. I went by to pay by insurance and a note on the door at the Higgonbotham Ins. says they have moved the office to Hardy and the note gives a P.O. Box at Hardy. The Hardy funeral home is closed. So the Cox/Higginbotham relationship must have soured. I just hope the state protects my money.
