Tetrick was great to us but it's been a little while back. What happened for you to say this?

I have performed many funerals for families that have chosen Tetrick for the final plans for loved ones. I have never seen or heard anything unprofessional from any of their staff. Richard Tetrick has a very well qualified trained and professional staff running his funeral homes.

. They treated us with care when our son passed. Losing a loved one is difficult in and of itself. I am sorry for your loss.

Nice to families. I remember when they first opened in Johnson City. Robert and Kitty Pickle were there and they were a class act. I do more funeral for Appalachian and Morris Barker these days.

Tetrick Funeral Home has always been first class in my personal opinion. The family and their staff dedicate so much of their personal time to the communities they serve. I've worked with many of the local funeral homes as a clergy member and have always heard from my members that the staff at Tetricks is always compassionate. Sometimes when we are grieving we may take someone trying to lead us or explain things to us in the wrong way.

Folks admit it, the funeral homes are ghouls who prey on insurance and fake sympathy. It's just a job for them and all the fake condolences are designed to rake in the money. I can't choose one outfit over the other since it is a for profit racket. One certain funeral home ( I won't mention the name) offers only packages, not personalized service. When my old physical vehicle wears out, I want to donate my remains to science or be buried in the back yard without money being made off my demise.. Ever notice the regulations for burial? A concrete vault and all that? Lifetime guarantee! Not to mention an urn @ 200 plus bucks in case you want to be cremated. These ghouls actually will rent a suit of clothes to be worn while you are propped up in a casket for the viewing of the remains and then reused for the next stiff. And they will also provide an off key singer to send you on your way for the right price. Bury me in my overalls and skip the profits! I am truly sorry for anyone who has lost a loved one, but taking advantage of it by the undertakers is about as low as one can go.

Must disagree bda. Tetricks has always been first class and sincere with any dealings my family or friends have had with them and that's been as recent as this year. The only negative comments I've heard has been from employees at other funeral homes and I wouldn't qualify those opinions as unbiased.

I have been trying to learn more about funeral homes. I used to think that they were a place for the dead to be like a mausoleum but, nicer. How would you describe a funeral home to a friend? http://www.elysianfieldsfunerals.com.au

Funeral homes are such a huge blessing to families that have lost a loved one. They are able to provide proper respectful services for those that have passed away. They are really able to help you through the hard times. It is so important that you have a proper ceremony for those that you love.

We have been trying to figure out where to have our funeral for our grandmother that just passed away. I have heard from our friends that it is very important to choose the right location for a funeral because it sets the best mood. People are in better moods if the funeral home is somewhere that they can feel happy.

My grandfather recently passed away, and we've been trying to find a good funeral home for his funeral. I really just want to find one that will give us one more good and final memory of him. Do you guys know where I could go for a good funeral home?

I would ask around the neighborhood to see what funeral services are around town. That is probably going to be your best option to find the right service. The sooner you can find a company, the sooner you can get planning on the viewing and all the other parts that come with a funeral. http://www.lawrybrothers.com

I agree with Zach that you should ask around town to see what's nearby. You should be to find at least a few people that can make a recommendation. Once you have a few places, it shouldn't be too difficult to find them and see which one you're most comfortable working with. Hope it all works out for you!

Two nights ago, my good friend passed away. He wasn't super close to his family members, so I think it's our friend group that's going to have the funeral. I've been asked to help with the funeral home. I'm not really sure where he would've liked it to be, but he always like the idea of having it somewhere with a pretty landscape. I'd love to hear of any places that come to your minds? http://wjsmithandson.com

When someone passes away it is hard on the family that they lost a loved one. I really hope that the family that is going through the heartache will be able to find some peace soon. It is hard losing someone you love. I know when my loved one passed away we had to look into funeral homes. It was a hard decision to make when going through a hard time. http://affordableburialandcremation.ca/Cremat...
