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, 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.

Obituary for James Elliott

Eastport & Augusta James William Elliott, 55, passed away at his home in Eastport, Maine on September 8, 2012 with his loving wife Cindy by his side. Jim was born in Augusta on September 21, 1956 to Harold & Irene (Virgin) Elliott. He was educated in Augusta Schools and graduated from Cony High School class of 1975. Jim had a very strong work ethic. His first job was as a paperboy for the Kennebec Journal in the Capitol District. As soon as he was old enough to get a work permit he started working part time and than full time at the Bates Mill in Augusta. Many jobs followed including painting for Sid Pare & Son, Hallowell Shoe and part-owner of Green Acres Landscaping along with his brother Harold. Jim had currently been employed for the past ten years for the City Of Eastport as the Supervisor/Caretaker of Hillside Cemetery. A job he took great pride in. Jim would always joke that he had thousands of customers and none ever complained! While living in Augusta he was a member of the Sharpies Cossack Drill team, The Boy Scouts of America, Augusta Little League and was an Altar Boy for St. Mary's church. Jim was also a member of the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department. Jim loved to go out to his camp in Pembroke and "take it easy" eating lots of lobster & clams, going fishing and watching old TV shows from Netflix! Simple pleasures was his treasure! He also loved to putter around in his shop and make things. He loved his New England Patriots and having a few beers and cheering them on with loud gusto! Jim also enjoyed participating in the Eastport Pirate Festival and the Eastport 4th of July celebration where he loved to show his vintage 1957 Mercury Pick-up. Jim had a big laugh and a big gift of gab which he would share with many! Jim is survived by his wife of 24 years Cindy (Brown) Elliott, his step-children Irene Wade of Manchester and Brad Shaw of Biddeford; and Step-Grandchildren, Michael, Steven, Lauren and Sarah Sirois all of Manchester. He is also survived by his mom Irene Elliott of Augusta, 3 siblings Harold, Jeffrey and Elizabeth Elliott all of Augusta; 4 nieces, Krista, Katie, Courtney and Camryn.
