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.

It is with a heavy heart that Barbara and Curt Reid announce the death of their angelic daughter, Katie Reid. Katie passed away unexpectedly in Rhode Island, family members were at her side as she passed. Given our strong Christian faith, we know that God is merciful and has already met Katie in Heaven with open arms. Katie came to us as a gift from God. Katie would put the needs of others well before her own. She was preparing to be a bridesmaid for her cousin, who will be married on Saturday, July 23rd. For reasons unknown to us, God has called Katie home. We know from Sacred Scripture that often times our ways are not God’s ways. With that we must rejoice in the fact that she is now with her loving grandparents in Heaven. We will always remember Katie’s smile, almost continuous laugh and her love and concern for animals, especially her dog Jax. We always know our dogs were in good hands when she was looking after them. She was a beautiful young woman who will be missed by all that had the good fortune to become acquainted with her. Katie was a 2006 graduate of Manchester High School and a 2010 graduate of Sacred Heart University. She was an avid soccer player, having played for Manchester High School as well as many travel teams. She especially enjoyed music, doing new things, and travelling. She was currently employed by Travelers Insurance Company. Besides her parents she is survived by her brother, Jason, her boyfriend, Andy Leitao and many, many friends and family.
