After the passing of my mother, Eliza W. Robertson, Doris & Tommy were very compassionate, very professional and the absolute best to work with. They took a very emotional situation and made it as comforting as humanly possible! When it came to our family & our service, Doris & Tommy went absolutely above and beyond expectation!!

Mr North and his wife were so very accommodating considerate, kind and sincere in every aspect of every step we had to make for my mother's funeral in 2004. Mr. North was so very kind and attentive to what I and my father talked about and he also shown compassion beyond any I expected at the time. I seen a casket that I felt drawn to in the color that was my mom's favorite, my gasp was heard only by him while walking to the group of caskets within our budget. He shown my dad when we got in the office and my dad thought we couldn't afford it but Mr North said we could. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. North.

Tommy North and his wife were the most caring people who help my family in the most stressed time of our lives. I know this is long pass due but I thank God for your instrumental love and help in executing this time of our lives for our loved one. From the Winton Family. Thank you Tommy.

Sometimes you know you are losing someone; sometimes it happens in the blink of an eye. Unprepared, shattered, overwhelmed - that is how my family and I came to Watson-North. How were we met? With love, compassion, and understanding. As the Lord held my mind, heart, and body, Doris held my hand. As the pain of my tears flowed, Tommy cried with me and alone because of me. As I could not think or process, Josh made midnight runs to florists to create loving, endless bouquets. Each member of the North family stayed late, arrived early, and loved my entire family through one of the worst days of our lives. Over this past year, while we all suffered with the constraints and restrictions of the pandemic, Doris happily assisted with our monument decisions and final placement. Goodbyes are not easy and the many issues involved can be quite a complicated process; the North family patiently guided us along to completion. Financially, we were offered all available options, no one in my family felt pressure to do anything - all decisions were ours. This chapter of my painful odyssey is now complete. Thank you Doris, Tommy, and Josh. I will never forget each of you and all the support, kindness, respect, and genuine understanding so freely given.

Tommy and Doris North are the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. They are truly ministering to the families they come in contact with. They have gone above and beyond to help us understand how the process works and are even helping us with other needs. Thank you is an inadequate statement- they will never know how much we appreciate them and their love they show to families during their time of grief.

Thank you to Tommy and Doris North for your kindness and compassion. You walked us through every step of planning moms funeral. You answered every question and helped guide us with the many decisions that comes in planning a funeral. You were considerate of our grief and so loving and concerned for us. Thank you for taking extra good care of dad who was ill with pneumonia but wanted to be at moms funeral. Thanks for setting chairs up front so he could sit down and for having ice cold water within reach. Thank you for the beautiful job you did on mom and on the gorgeous flower arrangements on her casket and in the vases. Thank you for working with us to add the extra flowers inside her casket and making her the lovely corsage around her beautiful pin. You exemplify what love truly is by the high standards and ethics you have set for your services. Thank you from the bottom of my and my families hearts. The family of Margaret McClain

Doris and Tommy North were so wonderful to us when our mother passed away. They helped us through a very difficult time and took care of all the details. Mother looked beautiful and you never have guessed that she had been so sick. Their kindness and caring will keep our family returning to Watson-North when we have funeral needs.

I have been to many funerals throughout the years and with no hesitation I have to say that the funeral I attended was the most professional and caring service by the funeral staff that I have ever attended. The funeral home was unlike any other that I have ever been too. It certainly represents exactly what a funeral home should. The beauty and space is beyond compare.

I had the honor of visiting this establishment today and I have to say I was in amazement! The staff was absolutely wonderful to my friend who just lost her 2yr old son. They were heart felt, kind, understanding and so very helpful in a multitude of ways. It's so comforting to know that you can go through something tragic and still deal with things in a way that isn't rushed or felt to just about business. When you walk into Watson-North you just feel "At Home"! ?

Doris and Tommy, It has been almost 18 months since I first met you, when you came into my home to welcome us into your family at the worst time of our lives. You loved on Landyn, shared your love of the Lord with us and with Landyn, and when his time came to be set free from his earthly chains that held him, you were there, and you stayed with us, and you continue to do so. I can never , ever thank you enough for who you are. When you stayed with Landyn the nights his vessel stayed there, and I was still afraid he would be alone, knowing he would never be alone again with Jesus, but you stayed by his side even in eternal rest. All that you do for our community, the Christmas service, the first Christmas without Landyn, was beautiful, and it helped me so much. When you had the Fall Festival for the community, and then the Easter function for our community, you went above and beyond. I never thought some of my best friends wound be in "this business," but I can't tell you how much you mean to us always.There are just no words of the gratitude, and I know you do it to Glorify our Heavenly Father. God bless you for all you do. Peace and love, Ginger Hartmann

My baby was born a healthy baby boy on December 1, 2014, On December 17, 2014 I woke up but my baby did not. I called Doris whom I have known for several years but never needed their services like this. I told Doris my baby was sick and I was on my way to the hospital. I ask her to please come with me. She came to the hospital. When I got there they told me that my baby was dead. I was scared, in shock and my world was spinning so fast. I couldn’t believe that my baby boy was dead. I didn’t know why or what happened. I was worried because I had no money being a single parent, I had so many worries about his funeral. I went to the funeral home the next day. When I got to the funeral home Tommy North walked in the room and said I will take care of all of this. I said there is no way I can pay this. Tommy North said pick out what you want. I was so afraid I had never done anything like this before. I told Tommy to pick out his casket that I didn’t know what to do. They walked me through everything. They ask me to sign a “contract” and gave me a price list of services. I knew I couldn’t pay anything, Tommy explained the process to me and when I looked at the bottom line, it said paid in full! That takes a strong man with a good heart to reach out to a hurting momma. They never ask for 1 dollar. I didn’t even have a place to bury my baby and they gave me a burial plot. My baby’s funeral was so beautiful. Tommy picked out the most beautiful little white casket. He dressed my baby boy and Ms. Doris laid him in the casket. I felt that the staff at that funeral home was such a comfort and they are still standing by me to this day. Not only are they professional but they have called me several times since the funeral to check on me. They go above and beyond their call. They have already taken care of the funeral but they still call me and that means more than words can say. They are even helping take up money for his little headstone. So if you are truly looking for an outstanding citizen in Franklin County that represents what love and compassion is all about, if you are looking for someone that stands for honesty and integrity and they do so with a heart of gold, then I know that couple. Tommy and Doris North you will always be a hero in my eyes. Sincerely, Kayla Reynolds
