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.

Obituary for Edgar A. Truitt

Edgar A. “Pap” Truitt, 71, of RR 1, Thompsontown, went peacefully to be with the Lord at 3:30 a.m., on Tuesday, March 18, 2008 at his home.

Born June 7, 1936 in Deanville, Armstrong Co., he is the son of Lois E. (Shindledecker) Truitt, Brookline Manor, RR 1, Mifflintown, and the late Edgar M. Truitt. His wife of 49 years, Mary Ann (Kavelak) Truitt, whom he married on Jan. 31, 1959, survives.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by, two sons, Ed A. Truitt, II and his wife, Sue, E. Audie Truitt and his wife, Sharon, all of McAlisterville; two daughters, Liz Treaster and her husband, Rick, of Mifflintown, Mandy Haubert and her husband, Michael, of McAlisterville; one sister Audrey O’Shell and her husband, Guy, of Clearfield; and he leaves behind eleven grandchildren: Adam Truitt and his wife, Karli, Beau Truitt, Ethan Truitt, Wade Truitt, McKenzie Truitt, Maddie Treaster, Dylan Treaster, Samantha Ramsey, Morgan Ramsey, Nathan Haubert, Talena Truitt and Tanner Truitt. Uncle Truitt will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews, as well.

He was preceded in death by one sister Ruth Ann Truitt.

He was a Baptist by faith.

He was a member of the Twin Springs Hunting Camp in Clearfield County, where he spent time doing many things that he loved, especially hunting, fishing and riding his four-wheeler. He also enjoyed doing puzzles, listening to country music, including Melvin in the Morning on WJUN, but his greatest joy came from watching his grandchildren play sports.

Until his retirement in 1994, Edgar was a self-employed saw miller, for 42 years, owning and operating his sawmill, first in Clearfield County and then in Juniata County.

Memorial services will be held at 1 p.m., Friday, March 21, 2008, from the Brown Funeral Homes, Inc., 16 Westfall St., McAlisterville, with Ray Baker officiating. Interment will be private and held at the convenience of the family.

There will be no viewing.

The family asks that you kindly omit flowers and please make memorial contributions in Mr. Truitt’s memory to the Delaware Township Fire Dept., RR 2 Box 1102, Mifflintown, PA 17059, or to the American Cancer Society, 324 S. Logan Blvd., Suite B, Burnham, PA 17009.
