Ordering through the funeral home helps ensure your order will be placed through a local flower shop with whom the funeral home has a personal and trusting relationship with. Through this service, you will be able to leave a longer message of support to the family via a card with the picture of your selection that will be included with your thoughtful gesture. As well as a photo of your arrangement and message 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, allowing you the opportunity to choose a different arrangement if you wish.
The price of these selections also include the funeral home caring for the flowers after the funeral and delivering them to the family, or various care facilities where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
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.
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.
Placeholder - to be replaced with Donations
We are proud to provide this service allowing friends and family to donate to any registered charity throughout North America. You will receive an official tax receipt immediately via email and your thoughtful gesture will remain on this memorial website in perpetuity.
The time surrounding a death can often bring unexpected final expenses for the family far beyond the funeral itself. We are pleased to offer the ability for friends and relatives to financially support the family during their time of loss as an alternative to flowers and other sympathy gestures.

WALLINGFORD – Robert M. Williams, 47, passed away Friday, July 9, 2010 at his home. He was the husband and best friend of Lisa (Knox) Williams. Bob was born April 15, 1963, in Waterbury, the cherished son of Robert F. and Kathleen (Furlong) Williams of Cheshire. A graduate of Cheshire High School, he moved to Wallingford in 1988. Bob worked in the lumber and hardware industry for over twenty-five years, currently at Lyon and Billard in Cheshire. Beside his wife and his parents, Bob is survived by his beloved daughter Erin Elizabeth of Wallingford; his brother Brian and his wife Caroline, and their children Emily, Hannah and Charlie, all of Cheshire; his sister Maureen Hunt and her husband Kevin and their children Ashley and Brianna, of Cheshire; sister-in-law Sarah Lovell and her husband Chris and their children Andrew and Evan, of Thomaston; brother-in-law Del Knox and his wife Kara, and their children Jesse, Tyler and Michaela of Morris; brother-in-law Chip Knox and his son Carter of Morris; brother-in-law Kurt Knox and his wife Kim, and their children Kaiden and Kolton, of Las Cruces, New Mexico; and many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins. Bob, Bubba, Bobby – however you knew him – was a very thoughtful man. His family and friends were very important to him, and he was an example of how to love, laugh and care for others. He naturally fell into mentoring nephews and nieces, offering his many “pearls of wisdom” to help guide them. By far, his life’s proudest accomplishment is his daughter - they share the same love of a witty remark, a great ball game and a good meal.
