At a time when everything is a blur of unbelievable loss and grief, Everyone was extremely deeply concerned and attentive. Carson was amazing fulfilling every detail that I wanted for my husband. Mr. Childress was so personal and took time to talk to me and my family. It truly was the most beautiful funeral service I've ever attended. It was for my husband and it was extremely important for it to be done well…it certainly was! I'm grateful.

Hamlett-Dobson treated our family with respect and made the heart breaking preparations for my father's visitation, funeral and burial a peaceful and honorable procedure. They showed compassion every step of the way. Sincere thanks to all at Hamlett-Dobson who were involved with the services for Dad (Paul Winegar). He would have been pleased. Bless you in the work that you provide for so many families. KWW

My family has used Hamlett-Dobson since 1948 when my grandfather passed. It is the only place we will use in Kingsport TN.


I really appreciated the help, concern and care given to every detail of Mom's appearance, visitation and funeral. Less than a week after Mother passed, my last aunt joined her in heaven. My cousin used another funeral home and it was obvious that this group was not on the level of Hamlett-Dobson. It was okay but the attention to detail was lacking. So a huge thank you to Hamlett-Dobson for everything! It was a sad time but the perfection of every detail was greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Dennis was extremely kind & helpful. He even made us laugh (good medicine for the soul) He explained to us in a manner we could understand. Hamlett-Dobson is blessed to have him.


Continue the same services. My husband, a Methodist minister, had lots of experience with funeral homes. Hamlett-Dobson is the most outstanding of them all. My family has used Hamlett-Dobson since the 1926, as I'm 89 years.


We have known the Childress family for years and would never consider another funeral home.


Couldn't have been better. Best funeral service I've ever attended. It was for my husband and, after 60 years of marriage, it was extremely important for it to be done well…it certainly was! I'm grateful.


I can't say enough how thankful I am that Hamlett Dobson was there to help me!! They were all excellent and very caring of our needs. The funeral home made it easier to deal with our loss!! Thank you so very much, you all are excellent.
