Marrazzo’s Manor Lane Florist: Your floral and landscape experts for three generations

by June Portnoy

Don’t be deceived by the name, “Marrazzo’s Manor Lane Florist,” because this business is a lot more than your average flower shop. They specialize in landscaping, hardscaping, lawn cutting, floral arrangements, and the sales and service of power equipment. They also offer a unique gift shop with a greenhouse.

Marrazzo’s has earned the reputation of being specialists in the horticulture industry by providing exceptional customer service by experts in the field. Mike Marrazzo, co-owner of Marrazzo’s with his wife, Nancy, literally grew up in this business, established by his father, Dan (Chief) Marrazzo.

Dan originally began a greenhouse business in 1947 at the young age of 15 at his family home on 1 Manor Lane in Morrisville. He started growing vegetable plants and cut flowers for the wholesale trade. The original greenhouses are still there today.

Friends Forever Pet Crematory: Battling the broken system of pet cremation

submitted by Friends Forever Pet Crematory

Losing your pet can be as painful as losing a member of your family. And we assume that once they have passed, they will be treated with the same love and respect as they were in life.

Andrea Anastasio and Robert Amato, Licensed Funeral Directors and now owners of Friends Forever Pet Crematory, experienced first-hand that this is unfortunately the exception. When Andrea and Robert lost their pet, Spike, they told their vet they wanted to keep his cremains (the term used for cremated remains).

The vet suggested an individual cremation, and explained that with this option, Spike would be cremated alone and returned to them. This is where things went awry. After an agonizingly long two-week waiting period, Spike’s cremains were ready to be picked up.
