Dear Dad,


I am not sure where you are in this photo, but I am happy to have it.  Today, I want to let you know only a few things that I haven’t already had the pleasure of telling you.  Thank you for sticking around to celebrate your 60th wedding anniversary with the Susie who you adored and who showed you more love and sacrificial adoration than any human being could ever ask for.  Thank you for coming to Easter at my house on April 9th to devouring lamb chops with my friends.  Thank you for rising to the occasion to spend time with both of your girls and giving Sally a proper send off to success at her 10th Boston Marathon.  Thank you for having the tenacity to be there to share your wisdom and strength with me and Whitney and Gordon while we endured unimaginable challenges.

Today I also noticed that you decided to be off on your next adventure only one day after your US Passport expired. A great planner you are, and I know that you know that we are all going to be just fine remembering all the things you have said and done.

And to the dear Lord of my childhood to whom you taught me to pray, I pray that increasing in knowledge and love of our Lord, that you, Daddy, may go from strength to strength in the life of perfect service in the heavenly kingdom.

  • 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.
