Sorry the Army didn’t work for you. Your brother Jay was amazing in pulling stings. Glad things turned around for you. From Idaho to Hawaii to Germany and back to Seattle and on the world was your oyster and you explored it. Rest in peace

I served in the army with Matt. Camp Pieri , Wiesbaden. He was a good friend for 2 years. I remember him having a broken leg . Covered with a massive cast. It’s been 50 years ago, but I can still see him vividly scratching his leg with a coat hanger inside his cast. He was a good friend. I shall miss him.

  • 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.
