Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Born January 30, 1917 in Elmira, the only daughter of Arthur and Salome (Huehnergard) Klinck. Eileen married Walter Bruder in 1938, celebrating their 67th anniversary prior to Walter’s death in 2006. Together they owned and operated Bruder’s Wool Shop in Kitchener for 25 years. Eileen was a charter member of St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Kitchener where she enjoyed the quilting group, the ELW, and the card group. Cottage life on Georgian Bay with family was also very important.

Eileen is lovingly remembered by her brother Leonard Klinck and his wife Myrtle of Milton, three daughters Carol and her husband Vern Allemang of Elmira, Marlene Maguire of Kitchener, and Chris and her husband Keith Weston of Duntroon. She will be sadly missed by all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
