Oh Gloria, you were a gem ! I’am so grateful to have known you. So many great memories with my wife and children visiting you when we could leave our busy lives. My wife stayed in touch every day until you left us. Calling with me and my children talking about what happened today. You made every person feel important and loved every one of us dearly. You will be sorely missed by your family and anyone who ever new you. God bless xxxxxoooo

I worked at The Moorings years ago and knew Mr. & Mrs. Hegeman. Mrs. Hegeman was so great. Always smiling, easy with her compliments and so much fun. The “Tacky” Party she created and hosted was the absolute best. I thought of her many times over the years. Peace to your family. I know she will be missed.

Dear sweet Mrs. Hegeman you will be missed for your wit and beautiful smile. I knew you and your adorable husband, Ray, from working at Hawk’s Nest Golf Club and your home parties once upon a time. Rest in eternal peace. With love and gratitude for being blessed to know you.

I met Gloria several years ago when she would come to 12th Street Starbucks. A lovely and most gracious lady . . .

  • 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.
