I was very happy to see that the funeral home has made many updates over the years. Also the kind hands that were so very helpful. Opening the door's and assisting with unloading the truck. Very kind and gentle voice at a time like this I needed that. Thank you for all that you did for us and dad looked perfect too! Thank you all, Kim Potts, Michele & Kelli

We certainly appreciate you purchasing a tree to be planted in Bill's honor. He would have liked that. He loved nature, especially walks in the park. Thanks also to all your staff for their kindness and support during this very difficult time in our lives. God bless all of you.

Friends at Rattermans, Thank you for your love, care, support and hospitality you showed for our family. My dad loved working with your group and had so many stories over the years. Thank you for care for him, even when he lost his eye sight. We appreciate you compassion and how you allowed us to have food and host our family both days. I recognize that is not common practice and it was very much appreciated:) Thank you again for sharing your beautiful facility and all you did to make a difficult time a wonderful experience.

Joey was very helpful at such a hard time for me and my family. I was surprised at how reasonable the cost of the whole funeral experience turned out to be.

Both of my parents had pre-arranged services with Ratterman's and they were nothing short of wonderful during such a grieving time. They truly make you feel like part of their family!

Laura Cundiff

Rattermans on Southside Dr have hearts that serve. Everyone in their business has a heart of compassion, empathy, and love. We appreciate the thoughtfulness of the staff that helped walk us through the sudden death of my husband. In the past, they stood beside us with our parents, our son, and many other family members.

Karen Mitchell

Everything was above and beyond our expectations. Thank you very much!

The Ratterman family and staff was friendly, helpful, and compassionate. Everything was done without hassle or concern. Great experience considering the circumstances.

Joe was so helpful. We have used him for both sets of our parents funeral arrangements. Most caring staff... All four times the staff was so caring. Even checked on us and sent cards after every funeral.
