Why order flowers through us?

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.

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

Circle of Life

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.

Obituary for Wanda Gail Richardson

Wanda G. Richardson, 61, of Milton, went to meet her Lord on Sunday morning, May 14, 2017. She passed away gently in her sleep due to complications from diabetes.

Wanda was born and grew up in Niceville, Florida. As her sister, Sharon, had already married and moved to Milton,…..Wanda wasn’t far behind, because she and Sharon were very close. There she also met the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Richardson. Bob and Wanda had one daughter, Stacey, and a grandson, Dylan.

Wanda had a bubbly personality. She loved shopping, and most of all, she loved her God. She went to First Pentecostal Church in Pensacola before she had to stop going because of medical issues. She loved her Pastor, Brian Kinsey, and and his wife, Lanette. She thought Pastor Kinsey was the best Pastor and teacher that she had ever heard.

Wanda was a good sister, mother and wife. We will greatly miss her. However, we rejoice that she has gone to her Wonderful, Final Home that we all pray to see.

Wanda is preceded in death by her husband, Robert “Bob” Richardson; a daughter, Tracey Charlene Allen; her mom and dad, Mary and Teddy Bass; and her brother in law, James “Jim Bo” Thomas.

She is survived by her daughter, Stacey Richardson; her grandson, Dylan Belanger; two brothers, Billy (Vicky) Bass and Donnie (Kelley) Bass; and her sister whom she lived with, Sharon Thomas.

The family will gather to receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, at the Lewis Funeral Home Chapel in Milton.
