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.

Everett Francis James, 91, of Satellite Beach, FL, passed away surrounded by his wife Peggy and devoted granddaughter April on August 9, 2013. Born in Hingham, MA, Everett was a brilliant man who worked in Operations at the Cape, was a HAM radio code operator K4SYU since youth, and actively volunteered with Meals on Wheels, Daily Bread, and SNAP. He received Volunteer of the year and Service to Seniors Hall of Fame for his tireless work in 2000.
Everett is survived and missed by his loving wife Margaret "Peggy," his two daughters Ellen and Mark Elam of Chattanooga, TN, Carol Tolliver and Stewart Smith of Athens, TN; his three grandchildren, April Tolliver, Miranda Elam, and Hannah Elam; his sister Mary McLellan of Hingham, MA and a very sweet Siamese cat named Spooky.
Everett was a Radio Operator in WWII, serving in the South Pacific with Company A 557 Signal Corp Air Warning Battalion. He traveled extensively after the war, working with code and in 1954 he graduated from Clemson. He was RCA MTP Down Range Radar Manager and while assigned to Eleuthera AAFB, he met Peggy, they married and lived in the Bahamas for several years.
Everett moved to the Space Coast in 1959, working a rewarding and fascinating career as an Operations Analyst with military and space, retiring in the 1980's. He enjoyed building his own inventions, including communication based instruments, and beautiful brass steam engine miniatures that resembled the very same machines he was in awe of. He would go on to travel with his soulmate to witness the majesty of the steam era still in motion from Europe, Canada to where ever the railways led them across the country.
Everett is preceded in death by his parents Oliver and Lillian James of Hingham, MA; his sister Helen and brother Richard.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Avante Rehabilitation and their dedicated staff.
Services will held privately for family at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to: Alzheimer's Association, 1850 York Road, Suite D, Timonium, MD 21093
