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.
This memorial currently does not have financial support enabled.

The world, the state of Colorado, and especially the city of Fort Collins have lost a unique and outstanding individual. Doug Sullivan died on November 30, 2005. He was 59 years old. He was preceded in death by his parents, Judy and Howard Sullivan.Doug and his wife, Jane, have lived in Fort Collins since 1987, though Doug spent much of his time traveling to various parts of the globe, empowering people to take personal responsibility for their lives. Through their company, Career Dimensions, Doug has touched thousands of people's lives in group presentations and one-on-one consulting.Doug was a man of extreme passion and a person who did everything in a big way. His one overriding passion in life was his wife Janey. Theirs was truly a love story of magnificent proportion. Not a day went by in their 36-year marriage that Jane did not feel totally loved by Doug.Doug was also passionate about his Harley Davidson motorcycles. He took every available opportunity to head out on the open road, often sharing the experience with Jane and their friends. Sometimes they went for an afternoon and other times they were on the road for weeks, but always it was an adventure.Doug loved animals and throughout his life he had animal companions who in many ways became his children. Most currently his little white Westie, Rambo, was the object of his great affection.In his spare time, if he wasn't on his Harley, chances are that you could find Doug on the golf course, enjoying another of his passions. Doug was a history buff, and if the weather didn't permit golf or motorcycles, he was likely reading, studying or watching television programs related to ancient history. Friends and family knew that if you were ever playing a game or having a discussion that required knowledge of history, geography or unusual facts, you wanted Doug on your team.Doug was very proud of his military service. He was in the Army and served a year in Viet Name. Doug had a wry sense of humor that he shared with everyone. He accepted every person he met at face value and extended respect equally to corporation presidents and the man on the street.His wife lovingly refers to him as a rebel with a cause - to make himself a better person and the world a better place. He was a light that burned bright and has gone out too soon. He will be missed beyond measure.A celebration of Doug's life will be held Friday, December 9 form 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Crown Pub in Fort Collins. Jane and Doug's friends are invited to gather, share their stories and send Doug off in a way that he would have loved. In lieu of flowers, his wife requests donations to the Humane Society of Larimer County or any other annual welfare organization of your choice.
