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

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.

On Saturday, June 18, 2016, Jacques Allaire passed away peacefully with family by his side, at his home in Cranberry Portage, Manitoba, at the age of 66 years.
Jacques came to Manitoba from St. Francois in Montmagny, Quebec, in1969 to work for Churchill Forest Industries. Here he met and married Paulette, wife of 43 years. Together they settled in Cranberry Portage to raise their family.
In this community that he was proud to call home, Jacques was a member of the local Lions Club and volunteered on the fire department. After a long career in forestry, medical issues forced Jacques to stop work in 2005.
Despite many health challenges, Jacques still found ways to do all the things that made him smile. Hunting, fishing, camping and manicuring his lawn, were just some of those things. Nothing gave him greater pleasure than lending a hand to friends, family and neighbors. Nothing made him smile more than spending time with his grandchildren.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife Paulette; son Derrick (Sonya Cook); daughter Michelle (Barry Mintenko); grandchildren Noah and Aiden; sisters Nicole (Rosaire Simard), Odette (Bruno Blais), Diane (Stephan Jean), Chantal (Marcel Bernier); brothers Robert (Chantal Theriault) and Yvon; and many nieces and nephews.
Jacques was predeceased by his parents Jean and Lorraine Allaire; brothers Roger and Gaetan Allaire.
Our family would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation for all the acts of kindness, thoughts and prayers at this time.
A special thank you to the Cranberry Portage Volunteer Fire Department
for remembering and honouring Jacques.
