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.
This memorial currently does not have financial support enabled.

Mrs. Ethel G. Redd age 92, formerly of 152 East 22nd. St. passed away on Monday, July 27, 2009 at Pleasant Ridge Manor, East after an extended illness.
She was born to the late Mary and Richard Green on October 17, 1916. She was a member of Holy Trinity Church of God in Christ where her cousin, Elder Willie Harris is her Pastor.
She was God fearing, loved the Lord and constantly read her Bible. She spent a great deal of her life, time, and energy entertaining, and encouraging her children, nieces, nephews, and neighborhood children by taking them to the circus, parades, movies, the library, and occasionally out to eat. She will be remembered as a sharp dresser in her younger days. She would lend her best dresses to people in need. In fact, most people thought that she was the First National Bank because she seldom turned down someone in need.
Ethel enjoyed word search puzzles and was a jokester with a big smile. Yet, she was serious person when she needed to be. She was a fine lady who loved everyone and will be sadly missed by her beloved family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband Richard Redd; a son Donald Redd; five brothers: Gabriel, Sidney, Bill, Sam, and Henry Green; two sisters: Mary Green-Manus, and Rachel Green.
She leaves to celebrate her life, a son, Ricky Redd (Joey); a brother, Arthur Green (Pinky); she helped raise two daughters: Carol Woods, and Kim Thompson, and a granddaughter, Indea Beason; a special niece and nephew-in-law who she resided with until her failing health, Thomas and Annie Myers; a special niece and great niece Loretta and Denice Gamble, who were her long time caregivers and God-daughter, Kathy Myers; and a host of nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. From a special nephew, "It's not how you start, it's how you finish. I'm sure God will say, Aunt Ethel, Well done good and faithful servant, well done".
Friends may call at the Holy Trinity Church of God in Christ on Tuesday from 11am until the time of service at 1pm. officiated by Aubrey Favors.
