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.

Johnie Alvin Green left this earth to enter Heaven on April 25, 2008. Shortly after Visiting with friends at a local store, Alvin passed away at his home in Coolidge from a massive heart attack.
Alvin was born February 20, 1931 in Purdon, Texas as the second son of Sam and Myra Green. He was a second generation farmer, working for Blake Smith, Jr. on land in Coolidge and Mexia. Alvin spent his life tending to land and cattle. He had a deep love Of the land. He loved plowing the fields, planting seeds and watching his crops grow. Fishing was a passion and an enjoyment for Alvin, who was known in the area for his fishing skills. He enjoyed entertaining friends and having fish fries. He enjoyed deer hunting, dove hunting and he loved baseball.
Alvin graduated from Prairie Hill High School in 1949. He then went to Dallas to attend college, but soon found that his heart had remained in Coolidge. He returned to Coolidge, and married the one true love of his life, Doris Burke Green, on April 14, 1951. Alvin was drafted into the army in 1955. He was stationed in Germany, and returned home to his wife in 1957. A year later, their son Richard was born, then 4 years later, their daughter, Sharon arrived. Alvin was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and a friend to many. He went above and beyond the role of father, and his happiness and meaning in life was always his wife and children. While Alvin and Doris only had two children of their own, his love and patience with children carried over to many that he loved and helped as his own.
Alvin was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone that needed it. Most that knew him found it hard to believe that he was actually a very shy person. He loved to laugh and tease to help hide his shyness.
While always living and working the farm, Alvin also worked for over 20 years at Nucore Steel in Jewett, TX. He was president of the Coolidge school board during the 1970s and 1980s, he was also a member of the First Baptist Church in Coolidge.
