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 Clara Belle Cross

Long time resident of Rifle and beloved friend, sister, aunt, mother and grandmother, Clara Cross, passed away peacefully in her home on October 30th, 2012. Clara grew up on Porcupine Creek on her parent's ranch, worked many years providing care for the residents at the E. Dene Moore Nursing Home, and was especially known and loved for years by so many who enjoyed her singing and guitar playing at numerous country western venues in the area. While recognized and admired for her musical talent and knack for entertaining, Clara is also well remembered for her limitless generosity. She was always ready to lend a helping hand when needed and never turned away anyone in need from her door. Her kindness, charity and sweet nature will be much missed. Clara was preceded in death by husband, Billy Cross, and brothers, Bill and Jack Eaton. She is survived by her son and his partner, Darrell Cross and Stacy Bradley, granddaughter, McKayla Cross, brother, Bob Eaton, sister, Jill Rich, and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Clara's life will be held Sunday, November 4th, 2 pm, at the Rifle Senior Center.
