I cannot say enough good things about Stevens Mortuary. They became more than a funeral home, they became a part of our grieving family, who through their kindness & understanding gave us a spirit that they really cared about my mother and our family and provided the spirit we needed to prepare my mother and our family what we needed for her farewell on earth and to her new life in Heaven!

I want to "Thank You" for all those involved in the Easter Service there yesterday! My daughter and I attended and we were very moved and felt God's presents. I encourage you to continue this tradition. All day it set the tone for what the real meaning of Easter is. Yes He is Risen!

Mary, Don, Eric and Steve: Speaking for the children of Louise Luttrell, I wish to thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for the loving care you showed Mom, and all of us, as you helped us honor Mom and say our final good-byes to her. You all helped make a sad day pass smoothly and very respectfully. I have to give Steve and Eric special thanks because I think that I worked them the hardest with the making of the video and all of the typing I asked you to do. I couldn't have asked for nicer, more patient people than you tow . Thanks for giving your time so generously . And, Mary, I was so delighted when I saw that yours was the first name in the Registry Book! Now I have two autographs from the oldest active embalmer in the US.... or was it in the world? Thanks for your kind and gentle care of Mom. The lipstick was perfect. And Don, my family remarked about the perfect color of the casket. It may have been exactly the same blue that was Dad's. Thanks for seeing that we got that that exact one. As Mother loved the green mountains of East Tennessee, it was especially moving for us that you have arranged to have a tree planted in her memory. It's wonderful to think that another generation will enjoy the beauty and benefit of a wonderful life-supporting tree, lovingly planted by you in her memory. Many thanks for that. She would be very pleased. We will always remember each of you with great affection, gratitude and appreciation. Many thanks, Dean Luttrell

"This is to thank everyone at Stevens for making this difficult time much less overwhelming. Thank you for walking us through all that needed to be done. We were very much at ease and able to make wise decisions. I'm asking God to bless your entire "Stevens Family."

Karen Justice and children

"Our family just wanted to thank all the staff for their help and kindness in this difficult time. You all have such kind hearts and there really are no words to express our thanks to you all. Everyone just went out of their way to help us and make sure everything was how we wanted it for our sweet angel."

-David and Jennifer Hopkins

"Thank you so much for all the details to which you gave your loving, caring attention to make my mother's funeral a beautiful, memorable occasion. From the first moment your funeral director appeared at the nursing facility, until I picked up the death certificates, everything was handled smoothly, carefully and in total accordance with our wishes. It was a pleasure to work with you, even under the sad and challenging circumstances. I would never have believed it was possible to pull together such a lovely occasion and the video in such a short time, and without a moment's sense of pressure or strain."

-Brenda Hamilton

"I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the kindness you bestowed upon my family and me while preparing for and saying "see you in heaven" during my grandmother's funeral. You all were very patient and accommodating as we all came to you with different requests or questions. Everything was handled very professionally but also with a personal touch. I remember being a young girl and Nana telling us on more than one occasion how pretty she thought Stevens was and that she wanted her funeral there. I now know why."

-Ms.A. Boardman

"Stevens Mortuary has served the Fielden, Burgess, Simpson, and Baskette families for many years. It's so reassuring to know there is a place which is so dependable, compassionate, and caring during times of sorrow and loss. We have been very pleased with the kindness and personal service provided to our families. We would highly recommend Stevens Mortuary."

-Mr. and Mr. R. Baskette

"I have known the Stevens family for almost 60 years. Tommy (the founder) told me years ago that he felt as called to be a funeral director as any minister to preach. To Tommy, it was a ministry of love and caring. His family and employees continue with that same goal. In 2001, my husband passed away. We were so grateful to have pre-planned in 1995 for that sad time. Stevens Mortuary has cared for many of my friends and always with dignity and respect. Their embalming skills are excellent. My husband looked dressed-and-ready for church. I certainly recommend their services to anyone in need."

W. Berggren and daughters

"I was so scared when I came to Stevens Mortuary for the first time to prearrange my funeral. I was made to feel they understood my feelings, and I felt like a loving family member was helping me. They helped me with every decision, and I had their undivided attention. The whole staff is very nice. The funeral home is beautiful and the landscaping is beautiful every season."

-N. Sparks

"To Mary, Don, and Evelyn and the rest of the staff at Stevens. Thank you so much for making my family and myself feel at home during the process of planning and carrying out my mom's funeral arrangements. I believe the service was just what she would have wanted. Your assistance during this time is greatly appreciated."

Sincerely Charlotte Shipe Lampley

"Thank you so much for everything through the loss of my Dad. Stevens funeral home is more than just a funeral home to me. You all are friends/family. You took such good care of us through this difficult time, and we can't say "Thank You" enough. We really appreciate your kindness. May God richly bless you."

Sincerely, Cathy and Eddie

"Dear Bernice, Evelyn, and Mary, Stevens did a marvelous job with our mama! She was beautiful. The service and picture display were just great. There were pictures from all stages of her life. (We) thank you for helping us muddle through the hoops! We thank you for being our friends!"

- Love, Julie and Susan

My brother and I wanted to thank the staff at Stevens for the wonderful job you did to make everything go so smoothly in our dad’s (Donald Jack Rankin) passing. Your knowledge and expertise helped the process feel not so overwhelming. You were a blessing to us when we needed it most. We so appreciate the tree seedling that was donated through the Batesville Living Memorial in memory of dad."
