"To the staff of Carter-Trent Funeral Home

Thank you all so much for helping us lay my sweet mama to rest. You guys were friendly, professional, knowledgeable and ultra helpful. You guys truly went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. Jacob, you gave us great guidance, advice and impeccable service. You took care of me and my family during the hardest week of my lifetime, and I will never forget it. And there were so many details, like making my daughter decaf coffee, changing dresses at the last minute and even willing to wear clown noses in honor of my beautiful, and crazy Mama! May God Bless all of you and your families richly and forever."

"Dear Mr. Price,

Death is no stranger to our family. Over the years we have given up many we love with all our hearts. However, a sibling, we have never known this heartache.

Our family was so blessed to have you as our Grief Counselor during Trisha's passing. From the beginning we met, you felt more like a friend helping us through our loss.

I believe God gives special talents to those who help His children through all of life's sorrows. You certainly fill the position that God has placed you in.

We will never forget your kindness nor the beautiful prayer you prayed before the graveside service.

I also want to thank you for the compassion & thoughtfulness you showed to Keeli. Her Nanny was very special to her & to see her take on the responsibility of making some of those tough decisions we have found also brings us comfort. The greatest gift on this earth is being loved by family & friends.

Thank you once again for the work God has you doing for the broken-hearted.

Sincerely, The Family of Patricia Christian
(Deb Hensley, The Byrds, and the Quillens)

Carter-Trent and John "Gip" Eidson "Thanks So Much" for allowing me to reserve three pews for our Surgoinsville High School Class of 1960 in memory of our “special classmate”, Sam McClain, on Monday August 10, 2015, so we could all sit together. I called Sam’s widow, Peggy, to see if she approved, and she was so excited and said Sam would have loved us for doing this and thinking of him. A special Thanks to “Gip Eipson” for taking time from his work schedule to get this arranged, reserving the pews, adding the signs, showing our classmates where we would be sitting, etc. He went above and beyond his duties to get this done and we all appreciate him for taking care of us. He was cleaning doors when we arrived and I know he was already tired. We had approximately 20 to 25 attend and 2 or 3 had to leave before services, they had traveled a long way with medical problems. The service was very inspiring with the songs, message (from Tecky Hicks) and all that was done! ”

August 10, 2014 Mr. Brent Warner and the staff of Carter-Trent/Scott County Funeral Home Mr. Warner I would like to take the time to thank you and your staff for helping me through this most difficult of times. I know that on Wednesday morning (August 6) I was in shock at the sudden and unexpected loss of my wife of nearly 30 years, Jeanette. I really didn’t know what to expect when our family’s friend Karla Murphy drove me down the mountain and across Hwy 23 to your office. Everybody with whom we came in contact with was most gracious and comforting. Karla and I appreciate your warm and efficient manner. You have a tough job to do and you did it well, from collecting the necessary information for the legal paperwork to explaining our options for services and accompanying materials. I never felt pressured or oversold on anything. I also appreciate your understanding about the two services. It did turn out that many of the hospital and university staff that were not able to make Fridays service were able to join us on Saturday. Rev. Jack Edward’s service was just right. It was precisely what we wanted and needed for that day. Jack, as our first pastor at First Broad Street United Methodist Church is an old and treasured friend. The fact that he knows both of us and particularly because he knew Jeanette before she became ill was so important. He was able to make the service personnel in a way which no one else could. The opportunity for a few of us to tell some stories about Jeanette, to share who she was and what she was about was very important to us. The facilities, setting and staff were wonderful and most helpful. The services on Saturday were also nicely done, Saying goodbye to Jeanette, my bride, fort the last time was almost too much for me. Your staff worked in the FBSUMC staff to make the final service and commitment so beautiful. Finally, the delivery of the flowers and other material to the home was done with kindness and sensivity. One again, Mr. Warner, thank you for all you did for me, my family and Jeanette during this difficult time. David P. Gymrek ”

Damon, thanks so much for your wonderful attention during our sorrow and grief over the death of my mom, Nancy Biggs. Please let the others at the funeral home know I appreciate them and thier assistance in preparing all the arrangements that they made for Mom, Val and me....From the morning you removed mom from Val's house to the actual burial site at Temple Hill. Who would have thought that years ago, my mom making all her arrangements, would lead Val and me to such a nice man. Remember I said, to you, "I wish you could take my face and make it look as wrinkle free as Mom's". You told me "In 30 years", Ha! Gonna hold you to it. In a happy mood, I say THANKS AGAIN.”
