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.
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.

HILL, Kelsey Lana – It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our most beautiful daughter and sister on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at the age of 13, after a courageous and fearless battle with cancer. Kelsey was the precious daughter of Derek and Lana, and sister to Megan, Corrie and Maxwell. Granddaughter of Lois Hill of Fort Erie and Walter and Joanne Martin of Six Nations. Kelsey will be sadly missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins. She will be missed by all of her friends from both Stevensville Public School and McMaster Children’s Hospital.

Kelsey loved attending school, playing piano, singing to Taylor Swift, playing golf, tennis, Uno and Wii with the family. A very special thank you to the Dreamcatcher Foundation and Stevensville Public School and family and friends for their support given to Kelsey while she battled. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Ronald McDonald House – Hamilton (www.helpourhomegrow.ca) or to Alivia’s Rainbows (www.aliviasrainbows.com) in Kelsey’s honour.
