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.

Born: Wednesday, November 3, 1954 The Pas, Manitoba
Passed away: Friday, November 6, 2015 “Doing what he loved.”
Danny grew up in Cranberry Portage attending Cranberry Portage Elementary School, and also went on to attend Frontier Collegiate Institute. During Danny’s many travels and work, he made lifelong friends and memories. Danny touched many lives due to his friendly and outgoing personality. Danny’s smile and character was always genuine and forever will be with our memories.
As we all know, Danny loved his work. There wasn’t one piece of equipment he could not operate or figure out how to get it back running. At times it was said that he would work in an area and be called a “Billy Goat” for others could not imagine how to get that buncher in there. Danny got it done.
Danny enjoyed the company of friends and family at anytime, especially during the holidays. Danny took great pride in setting up the yard for Halloween for others to enjoy. The Christmas décor outside gave him a special smile due to the bidding war he had with Brianne over “Olaf”. All of us have our special memories with Danny and he will be deeply missed.
Danny was and forever will be proud of all his children and grandchildren. He loved and adored them all in his own special way.
Danny peacefully passed away Friday, November 6, 2015.
He will be forever loved by his children; Tricia (Scott) Merritt, Danny (Allison) Sinclair, Gordie Ray (Sherrie) Sinclair, Dusty (Denise) Sinclair, Brianne Morin, Christopher Dickson; grandchildren Darrell, Clayton, Cheylene, Laurissa, Dreyden, Neziah, Brody, and Awna.
The love I have for my best friend cannot be put in words. I am so grateful and cherish our twenty-one years together and will forever be his “Brown Eyed Girl”.
Danny is survived by his brother Ted; sisters Fay, Pearl, Bertha, Elise and June; numerous nieces and nephews and his very special friend Shelly!
Danny was predeceased by his parents Charles and Helen Morin; sisters Audrey, Theresa, Lorette; brothers Gordon and James Morin.
