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, 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 Paula Mae Hendricks

A very special and unique person has answered God's call. Mrs. Paula Mae Montgomery Hendricks was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend to many. She was an immaculate home maker and an excellent cook who enjoyed preparing many delicious dishes for her family and friends. She never met a stranger and always met everyone with a smile and caring heart. She was born October 6, 1940 in Jefferson County, Birmingham, Alabama, to the late Edward Perkins and Queen Esther, Montgomery.

Paula M. Hendricks graduated from Rosedale High School and Pasadena City College. She spent much of her adult life in Pasadena, CA, where she met and married Bobby Hendricks, to which two sons were born. She was employed by the United States Postal Service and worked along with her sister and care-giver, Ms. Holly Montgomery, for many years. Later she moved fora short period back home to open Brown's Bar-B-Q and met old friends and made many new ones. She was a member of Bethel A.M.E. Church, Homewood, AL.

Her favorite prayer, the Prayer of Serenity:
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time...
