Memorial Program “Celebrate a Life”

If we are blessed, we will encounter people during our lives who change the way we view and experience the world, who touch our hearts in a significant way. When they are gone, we take comfort in finding a way to remember them and express our thanks for the role they played in our lives.

The Mill Neck Manor Memorial Program offers a most fitting way to honor the memory of those we loved. Your memorial donation will be used to create opportunities for Deaf children and to ensure that they do not become “forgotten,” but rather active participants in their future and ours.
