I’m so sorry for your loss. We had a wonderful visit with Buddy this fall in Falmouth when Jimo was laid to rest! It was even on Buddy’s birthday! May warm, happy memories bring you peace! Peg’s cousin!

My heartfelt condolence to Carol, Jack, Jill and all of Buddy’s family and friends. I’m so sorry for your loss. He reminded me of that song, “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” so I’ll always think of him laughing and remind myself to smile every chance I get.

  • 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.
