Condolences to the family of a most spiritually beautiful woman.
Our friendship was bonded by the love of Christ.. We would say the rosary before the 10:45 mass at Holy Cross. We would laugh as we looked like greeters to the parishioners finishing the prior mass.
Another smile came to our faces as we were able to get up after genuflecting.
As Father Dan teaches “ See you in Heaven Joannie”

Dear Family and Friends of ‘Joanie’, we knew Joanie as a case manager. She has a beautiful soul. The Bible tell us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and we know Joanie is there with Him. We will miss her visits, humor and loving spirit on this earth but will again see her in Heaven. The Dumas Family

I dreamed of you last night. You were in trouble and I rushed to help. When I got there you laughed. You were five and had that pixie hair cut. You were cute.

  • 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.
