A Letter to My
Community Family,

At Carter-Trent/Scott County Funeral Homes, we are community centered. We pride ourselves on our dedication to community outreach. We support many churches, charities and civic organizations, and most of our programs are free of charge.

We continually strive to be one of the leaders in the funeral industry. We do this by offering the greatest value and personal attention to the families we serve in the Tri-Cities community. Our staff provides personal service in a compassionate manner to every family.

With a long standing reputation for excellence, our goal is to assist you in creating a meaningful celebration that honors your loved one. We understand that no two families are the same, and therefore the needs and funeral services for each family are not the same. Our goal is to leave you with memories of your loved one that will never be forgotten, with receptions and services as beautiful and unique as the individuals they honor.

We understand making final arrangements can be extremely stressful and we are here to ease your burden. Our caring staff believes that our work is not a job, rather a calling, and it is with this special calling that families feel welcomed and comfortable at Carter-Trent.   I invite you to stop by our Kingsport, Church Hill, or Scott County locations to see what makes us so different.
