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.
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.

In 1956 Tsuyako and her family came to the United States on a Navy transport carrier and settled in Bronson, Michigan at the residence of her mother and father-in-law. Tsuyako & Weldon moved to Burr Oak and purchased the Artic Restaurant, which they operated from 1956 to 1962. They then relocated to the Union City area after purchasing a poultry & livestock farm. Tsuyako began working for a local restaurant known as the City Restaurant and a year later, in 1965, she purchased the establishment and managed it until her retirement in August of 1996. Tsuyako is survived by her daughter Joan (Joni) (Dauber) Frick & Bob Frick of Kalamazoo, her grandson Jason Frick of Arizona, her sister Toshiko Sugawara of Tokyo, Japan, several nieces, nephews, and numerous friends she has made throughout her business career.
