My sympathy to the family and friends of Eddie Makowski.
Although I have not been in contact with Eddie for several years, I remember meeting Eddie when he was a teenager in Haverstraw, NY. He joined the Marines and was so proud to wear the uniform. His brother Hank and I stopped to visit him at his Base one day on our way to NY, but he had gone to the beach. His last letter to us said he got a crew cut and a tattoo. So we walked along the beach looking for a young man with a crew cut and tattoo. Well, all the young recruits in swim shorts had both. We laughed and were glad Eddie recognized us first. We enjoyed the rest of the day with him. When he served in Hawaii, he sent me a beautiful floral Muumuu which I was pleased to wear especially at Hawaiian events for many years.
His passing will be a loss to all who knew him. May he rest in peace.

Gloria Makowski (former sister-in-law)

  • 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.
