Al was a neighbor and a really good guy. He was always up for a Hurricanes game or just a social gathering. He cared about others and enjoyed a party. Even my 30 something Children remember him as the guy with the biggest candy bars at Halloween. He will truly be missed but not forgotten.

Very sad to hear of the passing of “Big Al”. First met Al at Oppenheimer in Ft. Lauderdale. Al participated in the company softball team and was a hearty participant at the post game victory parties at Smith Brothers Lounge! While at Shearson Lehman, Al hired me as a liaison in the muni trading department and that began my 32 year career in munis. Al also bailed me out of a personal financial situation, which I remain grateful for to this very day.
RIP Big Al!!

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
