A Death Has Occurred
November 11, 2018, I lost my beloved son, Robert Damon Kerns. Years prior to his death, he expressed he wanted to be brought home to Tennessee to be buried. Viewing funeral homes and cemeteries, Robert expressed his choices to be Replogle-Lawrence Funeral Home and Centerville Cemetery in Medina. Robert was excited to pick out a picture of himself to have etched on his headstone, being very pleased with the results.
Not knowing the first steps to be taken at Robert's passing, I turned to Replogle-Lawrence Funeral Home. Mr. Clayton White, Owner/Director, went far above expectations in his advising me, conversing with Robert's children, Serena and Taz, and the funeral director in Mississippi. Release of Robert's body had to be obtained, since legally his children are his next of kin, and arrangement for transport. Clayton's expertise of calmness, professionalism and knowledge with all the controversy and time limitation involved, never once even appearing to lose his cool or raise his voice, was unbelievable. Being so patient, allowing the necessary time.
Mr. Barry Bland, Director Assistant, showed the caskets and vaults, giving all time needed to decide, being very calm, never impatient, and answering any questions. Barry oversaw the visitation, funeral service and transport of body to the cemetery and the service, making sure everything was to my expectations. Also assuring me there would be no problems, but if any problem should occur, assuring me they were prepared to handle. Barry took the time to explain how things would be handled after the service prior to going to the cemetery.
Both Clayton and Barry are wonderful, patient, considerate men going far above expectations. They stood by my side.
I highly recommend Replogle-Lawrence Funeral Home, Medina, TN, in all aspects, especially the concern, respect and professionalism administered by Mr. Clayton White and Mr. Barry Bland. I thank God for these two and their services.

Thank you again for the professionalism and kindness shown to our family with the passing of my grandmother Louise McCaslin. We couldn't of asked for anyone to of taken any better care of her and her funeral services. You came highly reccomended and proved to go above and beyond in our time of grief. Thank you so very much!
I went into a situation not knowing what to expect. Burying a child is hard enough without knowing the expectations of a funeral home. This funeral home went beyond anything I expected. They answered all my questions with expertise and were beyond helpful in everything I asked for or needed. They made my situation bearable and I so appreciated everything they did for me and my family.
Mother's services were handled very professionally and respectfully. She looked beautiful. I couldn't be happier; thankful for all you do.
Love the opportunity to say what an awesome job you did for my Daddy. You go above and beyond for families that are grief stricken. Thank you for all of your help and Clayton, you have a special place in my family's heart.
Your service was beyond expectation. Appreciate ALL that you did to help me through this difficult time.
Thank you for being so compassionate and understanding at the time of our great loss of mother. Thank you also for you patience and help with the prearrangements.
My mother's directions were for cremation, then services and burial in East Tennessee. Clayton White took care of the cremation with such dignity and respect. Excellence in action. My thanks to you for helping me carry out her wishes.
Replogle-Lawrence Funeral Home provided complete customer service from the first phone call. They took care of setting up all the arrangements to honor my husband's military service. They were super patient in helping arrange all the family request. We were very pleased with the on-line obituary and video. Family and friends that could not attend had the chance to view the video, and that was important to our family.
When our beloved mother died, at the age of 103, our entire family felt so blessed that we were able to have Clayton handle the arrangements. It was all carried out with the greatest of dignity, respect, and with the thoughtful kindness of the gentleman he just happens to be. It was a beautiful service, executed to make things easier on our family. Thank you to Clayton and Replogle-Lawrence Funeral Home.
