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.

Dearest John, John Jr. & Sandra,
My condolences to you and all my family. I pray to God to give you strength and courage in this most difficult time! Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am. It was a shock and terrible news to hear of my beautiful beloved sister Lina’s tragic death!
Lina had a heart of gold, always loving and giving person. She had charisma and aura about her that when she entered a room it would come alive!
Even though we live very far apart (my family and I live in Malta) we contact each other nearly everyday. I shall miss those messages and chats we had. But she will always be on my mind and forever in my heart!!
I love you forever.
May you rest in peace.

Mummy, We miss you sooo much every day. Daddy and I took your Ashes to Malta, ASI promised you I would, and we laid you to rest in the Caruana/Debono crypt so you are never alone. How we miss you so and we talk of all the lovely memories in our hearts, but they do but take the place of you being here so we can hold you, kiss you, and tell you how much we love you . I’ll always keep my promise mum… she will NEVER breathe free air as long as I live…. I will leave Florida now always so “Chrissy”,( she hated that name cuz only you and I called her that,) will rot in prison. I hope they do to her what she did to you: that’s only fair as you died at the hands if one you called “Daughter”. Adopted or not, you gave her everything under the Sun and we see how repaid you… for that act, I’ll send her to He’ll by my own hands. She killed daddy when she took your life nummy as dad is here simply waiting to pass to Heaven and be with his “ Beloved Lina” once again. I’ve kept my promise mum and I’ll lay dad next to you in Malta as it’s already set to be. Rest In Peace nummy, and watch over us always… Forever YOUR DAUGHTER BY BLOOD…. SANDRA M. KOHLER~GUERTLER…❤️❤️❤️❤️
