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.

Tony was what everyone knew him as. He was born on the family farm in the Saxon Hill district on May 11, 1926 to Anton and Mary (nee Szucs) Somogyi. He was the second of the three Somogyi brothers. The three boys were very close and worked together all their lives. Tony loved his cows and he could tell you which calf belonged to which cow, and if he didn’t know, he always carried a little book and he could look it up as he had them all marked in this little black book.
Tony was a hard-working, kind-hearted brother. He hardly ever went anywhere, but enjoyed people coming to the farm and having a cup of coffee. Of course Steve would always have chocolate cake. The hardest time for Tony was getting old and retiring. He carried on very well after Steve moved to the nursing home. This was very new to him as he had never looked after the bills or done any cooking. With the help of a very good friend, Gord Steffen, his sister Margaret, his nephew Albert and friend Marnie he was happy and managed very well until he got sick. The last five months were tough for Tony, but he never complained for he never had any pain. Tony passed away on June 5, 2008 at the Yorkton Regional health Centre.
Tony, we will all miss and love you very much and will carry you in our hearts forever.
Tony was predeceased by his parents, Anton and Mary (nee Szucs) Somogyi; two brothers and one sister in infancy; brother, Mike in 2004; brother Steve in 2007; and brother-in-law, Joe Potyondi in 2005. He leaves to cherish his memory: sisters, Theresa Potyondi of Melville and Margaret (Roger) Armstrong of Whitewood; nephews and nieces, Theresa’s family: Albert (Marnie) of Regina, Allan (Kathy) of High River, AB, Ernie (friend, Debbie) of Bienfait and Beatrice (Randy) Augustine of High River, AB; Margaret and Roger’s son, Dean (friend, Michelle) of Whitewood; great nieces and great nephews: Darcy Potyondi of Regina, Blaine (Tanya) Potyondi of Calgary, AB; Donelle (Jaret) Elliott of Calgary, AB; Curtis (Tanya) Potyondi of High River, AB and their sons, Joshua and Matthew (Tony’s great-great-nephews) and Derek and Dustin Augustine of High River, AB; as well as other relatives and many friends.
