You were truly a blessing to me and a wonderful mothering influence. You showed me support and love unconditionally during a very hard time in my life. I will forever be grateful for your generosity. Your contagious laugh will forever be remembered. Juniper would have adored you, I wish you and her got to spend more time together.

It’s a sad day to read of Linda’s passing. She and I go back a long way. I remember her for calling one evening on the later side, she was with my daughter, and wanted me to come get my daughter as she was not feeling well. Linda stayed with her until I drove up and she spoke to me. Linda, you will be missed, more than anyone knows! Fly high, be with your family. Love, hugs, and prayers go out to your family! You have earned your Silver Wings!

Sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. I worked with her at Florida National Bank back in the day. She had such a sweetness about her and we had some good times. I know she loved her children. May she rest in peace.

Our family was very sad to hear of Linda’s passing. My mother Elaine remembers seeing her at Stein Mart and buying baby clothes for Tessa from her. Linda used to shop in Publix and my mother and her coworkers all knew her and liked her. My kids all grew up around her she was like a second grandma to them.

  • 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.
