We are very sad to read of the passing of our friend who kept things spunky at the bridge club here in Vero Beach.
Priscilla was both strong and serious yet soft and kind.
I loved to make her grin. It brought me joy to get a good chuckle out of her.
John and I will surely miss our pal Priscilla and I hope to play a few hands to make her proud in the future and do hope she may look down and smile.

Priscilla was a force to be reckoned with at the bridge table. I always looked forward to playing against her as she raise the bar for the rest of us. I will miss seeing her at her corner spot at the lunch table. A life well lived.

I will miss seeing her in her favorite seat at the VBBC. When I first moved to Vero she was kind enough to play bridge with me even though she had many more points than I. RIP

  • 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.
