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.

On January 10, 2017, The Lord called Sally Ann Giles age 70, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, sister-in-law, cousin and faithful friend to rest her soul in Heaven. Born on May 7, 1946 in Elizabeth, New Jersey and predeceased by her parents, Sally was the eldest of four children to Louis and Margaret DeCamp.
The greatest love of Sally’s life was her husband James of 48 years and her greatest joy in life came from the moments she shared with her grandchildren.
Survived by two children James Jr., fiancé Nathosha Pitts of Franklin, NC and Tracy Sellino, husband Richard of Franklin, NC; three amazing grandchildren Natalie Giles, Amber and Anthony-Jon Sellino all of Franklin, NC and step-grandchildren Frankie and Karmyn Blount.
Sally was sister to Donna Keyworth, husband Douglas Sr. of Franklin, NC, sister to Bonnie Edwards, husband Larry of Canton, NC, sister to Louis DeCamp and wife Ruthie of Franklin, NC. Sister-in-law to John Larsen Sr., deceased, Glenda Osmond and husband Jerry of NJ, Carolyn Ledford of Franklin, NC, Doris Carpenter and husband William of Franklin, NC, Brenda Ansley and husband Otis of Gaffney, SC, Bruce Giles and wife Mickey of Franklin, NC, Mike Giles and wife Virginia of Franklin, NC, Ronnie Giles and wife Patti of Georgia, Edwin Giles, baby Ben Giles, both deceased, Ruby Grooms of Tennessee and several nieces and nephews.
Sally worked many jobs in her lifetime but the one which gave her great happiness was prior to her retirement working at Rahway Bus Company in Colonia New Jersey. For 28 years Sally was a school bus driver watching over the safety of the most precious cargo anyone could ever carry on many of the most hazardous roads in the country. Sally’s most beloved friends are Aunty Carol of Keansburg NJ, Joan Skinner of New Jersey and Helen, deceased from New Jersey.
Sally was full of spirit and spunk with a heart that glittered like gold; she lived her life always giving, never expecting a return and wanting peace and harmony for all.
