Ordering through the funeral home helps ensure your order will be placed through a local flower shop with whom the funeral home has a personal and trusting relationship with. Through this service, you will be able to leave a longer message of support to the family via a card with the picture of your selection that will be included with your thoughtful gesture. As well as a photo of your arrangement and message 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, allowing you the opportunity to choose a different arrangement if you wish.
The price of these selections also include the funeral home caring for the flowers after the funeral and delivering them to the family, or various care facilities 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.

William Paul Melton passed away June 18, 2017 in Irving, Texas. He was born on May 11, 1953 in Texarkana, Texas to Paul C. Melton and Patsy (Lawrence) Melton. He is preceded in death by his parents. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, son Matt Melton and wife Lindsey of Plano; sister Nancy Yarnell and husband Mark of Texarkana, Texas; sister Patricia Bryan and husband Bill of Marshall, Texas; sister Linda Hobson and husband Gerald of Atlanta, Texas and grandchildren Elise Melton and Hayden Melton and former wife and dear friend Carla Melton. He also leaves behind numerous extended family and more lifelong friends than could be listed. Paul was an incredibly loving son, father, grandfather and brother. He had enough personality and humor to fill an empty room and never met a stranger. Paul had an incredible love for music, theatre and any expression of one’s artistic character. This not only influenced his son into a deep seeded appreciation for the arts, but will also be a piece of him that will continue to be handed down. He will be desperately missed by all that knew and loved him, but we can rest easy knowing that he is now at peace at the feet of his lord and savior Jesus Christ. If there is even the slightest chance that an angel could have a sad day, Paul will be the one to throw on a Barbra Streisand record and make the world right again! Daddy, Brother, Grandpa, the world has lost a bright light, but we know you will be at the gates to welcome us home. A memorial service will be held at Custer Road United Methodist Church on Saturday July 1st at 11:00 am. The address is 6601 Custer Rd., Plano, Texas 75023
