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.

December 31, 1949 – December 5, 2013
Beloved father of Jennifer Andrews (Christopher Presley). Cherished grandfather of Brianna Payne. Loving son of the late Edward Andrews (1979); Betty (Clifford) Stewart of Windsor; and late stepfather Donald Latrobe Stewart (1999). Adored brother of Vicki Cunningham, Patricia Byrne, both of Kitchener. Will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Mike was a recently retired ironworker and was someone who was passionate about living his life to the fullest. He had two custom Harleys that he loved to ride with his many friends and together they took many long and interesting road trips. He loved to travel and was always on the move whether it was for work or for pleasure. Mike was a avid Spitfires fan, had a heart of gold and was always helping others. His unwavering cheerfulness, optimism and wit will stay with us forever. Mike was one of the truly great guys with old school values - family and friends were central to his life - and his passing leaves a huge hole in all of our hearts. He was the very best of men.
If you so desire, donations to the Lung Association would be appreciated by the family. Memorial visiting Sunday 7-9pm, Monday 2-5pm and 7-9pm. Celebration of Michael’s life Tuesday 10am at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841
