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.

Reedville- Lucy M. Forbush, age 95, better known to her friends and family as Phyllis, Phyl or Philly, died July 25, 2015, of natural causes.
She was born July 12, 1920, in Irvington, VA. She graduated White Stone High School in June 1938 and on December 30, 1939, she married Leslie Forbush who preceded her in death in February 1991. Other than during World War II, where she and Leslie worked at a defense plant in Baltimore, Phyllis lived in Reedville and Lilian most of her adult life and during her more than 52 years of marriage to Leslie. For the past eight years, she resided near Pensacola, Florida, to be near her son, Wayne, and his wife, Sandy.
Phyllis was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a dear friend to many. She enjoyed having fun, all board games and any type of card game. She had a strong passion for playing Bridge and especially enjoyed her many Bridge friends. She loved the Lord and spent much of her time praying both for herself, her family and her friends. Phyllis was always active and “on the go”, usually initiating things to do and places to go with her many friends. She had the appearance and energy level of someone far younger than her age.
Phyllis is survived by her son, Wayne Forbush (Sandy), two grandchildren, Todd Forbush (Hillary) and Nikki Forbush, along with two great-grandchildren, Taylor and Ali; and a niece, Ruth Payne (Gordon) and nephew, Jim Haynie (Debbie). Also, she loved her step-granddaughter, Shelley Holzworth (Chris) and two step-great grandchildren, Christopher and Grayson.
Phyllis’ cremains will be interred at Roseland Cemetery, Reedville, VA, alongside Leslie. A celebration of her life is tentatively planned for late October 2015.
