Matt Bratchett was my best friend and my heart is breaking for his family. We talked about getting older and our kids playing together. I wish I was a better friend the last 10 years. I was dealing with trying to get my life together. I’m so sorry Bobbie jean and Bob that I didn’t reach out to Matt more. Matt was a brother to me and I feel so bad about everything. I’m flooded with so many memories, like when the cops got Andy Peach, Matt and me when you guys lived on Mabert for sneaking out. I love all you guys and just want you to know I’m sorry for not being there for Matt. My heart is broke
It's been 6 months since I lost my dad, at the age of 44 unexpectedly. Dawn and her father did such a good job with comforting me and my family during such a hard time. That day still plays in my head, but what will stick with me forever is how loving and truly caring they are and will go above and beyond for anybody! Especially Dawn, which called me unexpectedly to tell me she searched and searched for my dad's thumb print so I could have it as a keepsake, and I thought that she wouldn't be able to find it but she didn't give up on me months later! These people are truly heaven sent, thank you guys so much for what you did for our family during that hard time!
Portsmouth is lucky to have such a first class funeral home, director and staff. Whenever they have cared for my loved ones or friends, this funeral home bends over backwards to help families cope with the loss of loved ones. Thank you for your service to the Portsmouth community.
One of the saddest time in my life was when I lost my mother this past Nov. The genuine sympathy and kindness the Scotts had with my family and me during that heartbreaking time was above and beyond anything I could have even wished for. They didn't use our grief to make any extra profit, they encouraged us to do with our mothers ashes as we saw fit (Sounds silly, maybe, but I had my share put in a mason jar because that is the vessel which best reminds me of my mom!) Mr. Scott and his daughter are truly a God send for such a trying time. On a side note ~ my brother and I chose to witness the beginning of Moms cremation and I am still spinning with how BEAUTIFUL that experience turned out to be! The gentleman in charge is just as wonderful as the Scott's. He allowed us to add some personal things within Moms cask, then participated in the eulogy / prayer. The experience was above and beyond any burial funeral I have ever been to. It may sound morbid to hold a farewell ceremony at the cremation site, but it turned out to be the best good bye service EVER.
