We here at Karnes and Son Funeral Home have received the following guidelines from the State of Tennessee.  After careful consideration of the guidelines put forth by the CDC, and the President of the United States regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Karnes and Son Funeral Home will implement these guidelines.  The following recommendations have been suggested by the National Funeral Directors Association in addition to the Tennessee Funeral Directors Association.  We are strongly recommending taking the following steps to ensure the safety of our families, guest, and staff.

1. Private family visitation/services with a pastor or celebrant for prayers and a message.

2. Private family burials.

3. Suspending receptions and/or visitations at the funeral home.

4. We will offer public memorial services at a later date, for no additional expense.

 5. We have on-call representatives that can be reached at any time.


We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to ensure our families receive the support they need while keeping them, their guests, and our staff safe and healthy.

Do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns.
