Why order flowers through us?

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.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

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.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

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, 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.

Obituary for Shelby Dawson Harmon

Our beautiful Shelby Dawson Harmon lived life big, loud, and hopeful. Jesus blessed her with her beautiful wings on Saturday, October 20, 2012. A celebration of this new precious angel and her amazing love a visitation will be held at 6:00 p.m. then a 7:00 p.m. service Wednesday, October 24, 2012. This celebration of a young life will be held at the place Shelby grew up and grew with the Lord, Calvary Baptist Chapel. Brother Joe Young, whom watched Shelby grow into a beautiful girl from a chubby baby, will be officiating. Shelby graced us with her glowing presence on June 4, 1992. James Clay Harmon, Jr. and Angela Lynette Harmon were not prepared for the love they felt when they first laid eyes on their sweet baby girl. They were more than blown away by the love that exploded from her tiny heart. Shelby loved school. She touched hearts, broke hearts, opened her heart, and learned more about life than the average normal girl. She graduated with memories to hold, friends to hug, and a 4.0 to be proud of herself. Shelby touched so many lives. She had so many friends that she carried with her through college. All of those memories lifted her through her college moments at Mississippi Delta Community College. She not only earned her Associate Degree but continued for more. Shelby lived her life always reaching for more. She left so many loved ones behind. She is honored here on earth by her parents, James Clay Harmon, Jr. and Angela Lynette Harmon and a little brother, James “Trey” Harmon. She also left two sets of grandparents that cherished her: Charles and Brenda West and James “Jim” and Frances Harmon. Her aunts and uncles that will miss her deeply: Kelly and Andy Kirkland, Joe Dank Walker and April Walker, Kevin and Lisa Hill, James and Wendy Sullivan. She filled the lives of all of >her cousins: Bear Walker, Browning Earp, Maci Marli, Jr., and tiny Aubrie Sullivan, Daniel and Sissy Vanlandingham, Anna and Kaylee Kirkland, and Robbie and Ginger Hill, along with so many that she loved as family. Shelby was born into a family that lived for family. We were more than family, we are friends. We carry, we support, we unconditionally love. We never stand alone. Every moment apart we carried our love. Now with wings, you will fly high with our hearts as we continue holding on to yours. Michelle Denise Sullivan will be there with open arms welcoming you. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Robert Neal Food pantry in care of Calvary Baptist Chapel P.O. Box 66 Rome, MS 38768.
