Funeral Home Opens Doors to Forest Hill Patrons

Posted on Tue, Jan 23, 2007 at 4:00 AM

On Monday, January 29th, High Point Funeral Chapel on Summer Avenue will host an open house for people with pre-arranged services at Forest Hill Funeral Homes.

Forest Hill Funeral Home owner Clayton Smart is facing several class-action suits after he announced he wouldn’t be able to honor over 13,000 prepaid burial contracts last July. At the time, he blamed inflation, but now state authorities are saying he invested the money from those contracts elsewhere. Smart filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Oklahoma yesterday.

David Keller of High Point will have extra staff on hand next Monday to counsel those affected on how to transfer arrangements to his or another local funeral home.
