We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

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

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

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