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.

Sympathy Cards

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.

Financial Support

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.

Obituary for Jim SCHIFFBAUER


Jim Schiffbauer made his 9:55
tee time at Purgatory Pines Sunday March 1, 2009. His earthly
gallery includes daughter and son-in-law, Donna and Brandon Smith
with granddaughters, Taylor & Alexis Smith, all of Fort Bragg, North
Carolina; brother & sister-in-law, George & Janet Schiffbauer and
nephew, Nathan, all of Interlachen. Already awaiting his arrival
are his parents, Ben & Mary K. Schiffbauer and a niece, Amber
Renee. Jim’s life was not always easy, but the last few years were
made special by his extended family at the Palatka Municipal Golf
Course. As Bucky put it, “he was sometimes homeless, but never
friendless”. May all his chip ins be birdies.

Funeral services will be held 2:00 P.M. Friday March 6th
at the Johnson Overturf Funeral Home in Palatka with Father Bob
Napier officiating. In celebration of his life, a memorial video
will be shown. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: Haven
Hospice Roberts Care Center, 6400 St. Johns Avenue, Palatka,
Florida, 32177. Friends may call Thursday from 5:00 – 7:00 P.M. at
the Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home in Palatka.
