We give them back to You, O Lord who first gave them to us; yet as You did not lose them in the giving, so we do not lose them by their return… For what is yours is ours also, if we belong to You.
Love is undying, and life is unending and the boundary of this mortal life is but an horizon, and the horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
Lift us up strong Son of God, that we may see further. Cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly…
And while You prepare the place for us, prepare us also for that happy place that we may be with You, and with those we love forevermore.

    • 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.
