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.

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.
