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 Michael Cea

Michael Cea, born on April 17, 1931, was a life-long resident of the Bronx, until moving to Florida in 2002, to be closer to his family. He is survived by his loving daughter, Jodi Ann Cea; granddaughters Heather Cea and Melissa Kahler; and four beautiful great-grandchildren - Ashley (18), Zak (11), Rosey (9), and Kadence (5), all residents of Florida. He will be missed by his family very, very much. Although divorced for over 40 years, Michael remained friends with his wife Virginia until her unexpected death in 2003. He is also predeceased by his parents, Rocco and Antoinette (Rendina) Cea, and his only sibling, Dolly Fraioli, whom he shared a birthday with just four years apart. He also leaves behind to cherish his memory two nephews, Robert and Michael Fraioli, as well as numerous cousins. Michael was very proud of his Navel affiliation during the Korean War and was also a life-long honorary member of the Knights of Columbus and the Sons of Italy. He was employed by Varsity Transit as a school bus driver in the Bronx for 30 years. He also worked as a security guard for the Bronx Botanical Gardens for 10 years. Michael was a dedicated, hard worker until his retirement, he was a loyal friend to many, and was consistently an hour early for any appointment. He also had a great sense of humor, which was still evident to the hospital personnel even at the end of his life. Michael was a gentle man as well as a gentleman. He was also a loving, generous father and grand-father. He took great pride in the love he received from his great-grandchildren. He will be forever loved and always missed.
