This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

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, 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.

Dear Sheryl! So sorry to hear about your dad! I hope he didn't suffer. Mom died last February at 91 of a heart attack. She didn't have a funeral as she donated her body to medicine. I send your dad a Christmas card last year telling him; I'm not sure if he got it. But to you and your family: your Dad was sooooo much fun and sooooo handsome when I was 16 and staying with you at his house! I had such a blast with you and him at the Erie County Fair and had my very first plane ride! That was definitely one of the best summers of my youth. I hope you get this and I hope to hear from you. Love always, Pam (Stan and Dr. Joseph Cioccio)

I was happy to know Jay for over twenty years and heard many good stories. My favorite by far though was when he filmed the car stunt for one of the Roger Moore James Bond movies. He was a hard guy to forget and I hope that memories like mine will be multiplied many times over and shared with his family by the huge number of people he knew and whose lives he touched. May he rest in peace.Blessings and peace to all the family.

Jay, Paul and the Milligan Family, Our deepest sympathies on the passing of your dad. His compassion and expertise on how to do run demolition derby was and continues to be the benchmark. I have so many fond memories of him at the convention and our fair. He always took the time to talk to you and find out how you personally was doing. Hang on to those memories and I am sure he is negotiating a derby in heaven! Pam Ferranti, Wayne County Fair President
