Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

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.

Memorial Trees

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, 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.

Obituary for Betty “Nana” Byrd Fulcher

Betty “Nana” Byrd Fulcher, 78, of Navarre, Florida passed away Saturday, July 8th, 2017 at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.
Betty was born in Bunn Level, NC, the daughter of Douglas Byrd and Betty McLean Byrd. She was a graduate of New Bern High School in New Bern, NC. She served as personnel manager at Kmart stores in Northwest Florida until her retirement in 2005.
Betty was a good friend to neighbors in the Pritchard Point community, enjoying happy hours by the water, pool gatherings and decorating for the holidays.

After making homes in Panama, the Netherlands, and the UP of Michigan, she spent the last 40 years of her life enjoying the white sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, a home she never wanted to leave.

Fulcher of the home; daughters Joy Fulcher Sharp and spouse Robert Maxwell of Tryon, NC and Donna Fulcher Akers of Matthews, NC; grandchildren Sean J. Sharp of Gainesville, Fl, Cassady S.
