My father was everything to us. The funny guy. Whenever you needed him, he was there, always. Never question he just helped every chance he can get you know when you’re young and in life you don’t realize the consequences in the challenges. My father had to face to fix things in our lives and then when we become adults . The sacrifices, he had to make to actually help us get what we needed. My boyfriend Tanilao (Jose) always took it upon himself to take my dad to Conchy Joes or thirsty turtle to grab a beer with some shrimp or crab legs. My father loved seafood and he always made my father laugh. That was always after his chemo or his radiation. He loved my father My father had such a dear love for him as well. He will be dearly missed by all. Thank you everybody for all your well wishes. I love you, daddy.

Uncle Tony was such a wonderful gentle man. The biggest smile and heart. His sense of humor was always my favorite thing about him and he always had a joke for us at family functions. Made me laugh more times than I can count. He was a true matriarch to his family and his extended family through his friends and children’s friends. He always made me feel like part of the family and feel genuine care and concern. He will forever be missed and fondly remembered…may God bless you Uncle Tony, rest in eternal peace and love…❤️❤️❤️

What can I say about an uncle who genuinely cared and listened to you. Whenever I visited my family in Port St Lucie I made it a point to look for him just to talk. It could be about anything and he would give you his take on it. He was a person who cared for others especially his family. I will miss him dearly but know he is now in a better place. He in now in an his everlasting home with family & friends who have gone before us. No pain, no sorrow, just everlasting love with Christ. I love you Uncle Tony and ask you watch over all of us until we meet again. ❤️ JCIT

  • 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.
