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.

Rick, 68, died peacefully on 11 January, from cancer. He is survived by his brother Bob and Bob’s wife Evelyn; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and countless friends. His family are grateful to his friends for their dedicated support during his illness, and to the May Court nurses and staff for their attentive hospice care. Rick was an avid sportsman, enjoying basketball, golf, and fishing. But his greatest love was hockey – until a few months before his death, he was typically on the ice twice every week. Rick served as President of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa in 2002-3, and was elected Lieutenant-Governor of Kiwanis for Eastern Canada and the Caribbean for 2004-5. Kiwanis International awarded him the Glen Bagnell Growth Award and a Mel Osborne Fellowship. Late last year, Kiwanis Ottawa established the Rick Barrigar Scholarship in his honour. For Kiwanis and privately, Rick devoted time and effort to charitable causes, including years of service to the Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa. Rick served in a number of sales-oriented positions, especially in the computer industry, during his working life. His most recent employer Coughlin & Associates Ltd. was especially supportive during his terminal illness. Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street (at O’Connor), on Saturday, May 12th from 2:30pm until the Celebration of Rick’s Life Service at 3:30pm. Reception to follow. Rick did not request donations in his memory, but the Hospice at May Court, the Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa and the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa would be worthy recipients. www.hospicemaycourt.com
