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.

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.

MEE, Allen Louis - Passed away peacefully in the NOTL hospital at the age of 67 on September 18, 2012 after a year long illness. Allen leaves behind his best friend and wife Cate. They were married for 41 years and had a fantastic life together; they worked at the same company, operated a vineyard, played on the same squash team, golfed weekly and enjoyed travelling around the world on their many holidays. Allen’s greatest joys were his two children Sarah and Johnny. Sarah is an engineer, married to Steve, they live in Wales and have two children Stuart and Seren. Johnny is a physiotherapist, married to Wendy, they live in Toronto and have three children Tory, Trevor and Lisa. Allen left his native South Africa in 1969 to pursue his engineering studies at the University of Calgary where he met Cate. After finishing his PhD. he joined Acres International (now Hatch) in Niagara Falls in 1974 and worked for them until he retired. He was their senior structural technical expert and was highly respected by his colleagues for his knowledge and mentorship. The one big regret is that he was unable to complete his model steam engine which was another of his passions.
Allen leaves behind his 2 elder brothers Ernest and David still living in South Africa. He will fondly be remembered as a wonderful uncle by Steve, Allen, Michelle, Barry, Genee, Hayley, Nicky and Sam. Allen will be greatly missed by his very many friends both near and far. The family would like to thank Dr. Deheshi, his colleagues and the great nursing staff on floor C3 at the Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton; Dr. Levesque of the oncology department in St. Catharines and also Dr. Viviers and the wonderful sympathetic staff at the Niagara-on-the-Lake hospital.
Donations can be made in Allen’s name to the Walker Family Cancer Centre.
The family will receive friends at the Morgan Funeral Home 415 Regent St. Niagara-on-the-Lake, on Saturday September 22nd, from 1-4p.m. A celebration of Allen’s life will be held at a later date, when his family from overseas can attend.
