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.

Charlotte Hendry (nee Gray) - A long-time resident of Newcastle Ontario passed away at her retirement residence in Belleville on May 14th, 2018 in her 97th year. She was born in 1921 in Newcastle and lived there her entire life until moving to Belleville in the fall of 2014. Charlotte was the wife of the late Alex Hendry. She is survived by her three sons George (Pat) in Ottawa, Frank in Belleville, and Grant (Annette) in Miramichi, New Brunswick. She will be missed by them and by her 7 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Charlotte is survived by her sister June and was predeceased by siblings Ethel, Alecia, Gwen, Alfred, Mabel, Betty, Doug, Jack, Charles, and Ken. A lifelong member of the congregation at St. George’s Anglican Church in Newcastle, Charlotte and her sisters were key members of the ACW fundraising/catering business which flourished for many years – Charlotte finally had to give up her participation in her early 80’s – but her legacy lives on in a generation of grandchildren who insisted she teach them how to make her signature raspberry and blueberry pies, along with butter tarts and chocolate chip cookies. Charlotte’s wonderful sense of humour remained with her until the very end with a seemingly endless supply of humorous remarks and observations on life and her situation. The family would like to thank the staff at the Richmond Retirement Home for their care and many kindnesses during her time there, and Dr Rebecca Holmes who cared for her with such compassion and understanding. In respect of her wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Internment will be a private family affair at St. Georges Cemetery Newcastle. For those wishing a donation in her memory, a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to JOHN R. BUSH FUNERAL HOME., 80 Highland Avenue, Belleville (613-968-5588).
