Dear Dave,
We were saddened to read that Sandy has passed. I remember her as a vibrant, good natured, and fit lady. I’d frequently see her out walking for fitness while on her lunch break from her nursing position at the Devereux School in Rutland. It doesn’t seem like you’ve been in Florida since 2007. I have fond memories of both of you. Again Dave, I’m very, very sorry about Sandy’s passing.
Sincerest regards,
Dick Salls

David and Susan, my condolences on the loss of Sandy.
Working with Sandy for so many years at the Greenery and Mill Hill are some of the best times of my nursing career.
Her friendship, humor and all of our shenanigans ( Laverne and Shirley) are etched in my heart . She was just the best!

  • 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.
