I will miss my brother Robert every day. Yet the ideas he shared, and our mutual experiences will remain with me always. He was an artist, philosopher, and healer, whose kindness and concern touched many people.

On behalf of myself and everyone at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture (PIHMA), College and Clinic, I want to extend our condolences to his family. I remember Robert in the early years of Asian medicine developing in Arizona. We worked together both to grow this medicine with the state association, and also to grow education of students at PIHMA. He had a great sense of humor and was a kind person and an excellent teacher. I am confident he is doing well and bringing humor to all in heaven.

Cindy, My heart breaks for you. I was just double checking Robert’s email yesterday because I wanted to get in touch to tell him and you that I am still doing my Qi Gong practice that you taught me back in 2005 and to catch up. Instead I found your message that he had passed away this past Summer. Robert was such a remarkable person. So caring and genuine in his desire to help with anything I needed. Around our house for years, and sometimes till this day, I will quote Robert’s wisdom to Tim or Kira. Robert always took as much time as I needed to discuss what was going on in my life and to try and figure out how to help me. And, of course, he always did! Robert was someone you/I could completely trust which is so rare these days. I loved him as a friend and respected him as a Dr., and I will miss him dearly! “Everything is going to be alright” was always so comforting to hear from him during our sessions. Robert spoke from the heart all the while being extremely intelligent in his ability to help me with my pain. You and Sean have my deepest sympathy. Love, Melissa, Tim, & Kira

  • 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.
