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.
This memorial currently does not have financial support enabled.

Aryan passed away on May 20, 2012, surrounded by loved ones. At the age of 46 years, he leaves to mourn his loving spouse, Peggy Matchim; dear brother Dr. Hooman Ahrar (Emilia Sadeghi Ahrar); mother Jaleh Daroogar Ahrar and extended family. Predeceased by his father Dr. Ali Ahrar, Aryan also leaves to mourn a wide network of good friends and work colleagues, as well as his loving in-laws, Ford and Marina Matchim; Roxanne Matchim Brown (Glenn, Paige and Riley); Leslie Matchim (Angie, Julia and Kate); Greg Matchim (Paula and Darby); and his adoring little canine buddy, Sumo.
At this sad time, those of us who knew and loved Ary are reflecting on his very full life and some of the many passions he shared with us, including world travel, golf, good food, his work in the oil&gas industry and of course, automobiles. He will be remembered for his strength, generosity, humour, civility and gentle spirit.
As per Aryan’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of his life this Friday, May 25th at Barrett’s Funeral Home at 328 Hamilton Avenue. This will include visitation with family and friends from 2:30pm-3:30pm, followed by a short remembrance ceremony beginning at 3:30pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Aryan`s memory may be made to the Palliative Care Department of the Dr. L.A. Miller Centre or the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation. Aryan and his loved ones were extremely appreciative of the high quality of care he received at both.
