Why You Should Plan Ahead and Let
read morePre-planning is a matter of taking the time to think about - and record - your end-of-life desires. It's a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family.
read moreOn April 21, 1997, Ken's father died. His wish was to be cremated and his ashes spread upon the sea that he loved. Ken relates, The experience was so unlike a land burial, unlike any funeral I had ever experienced. There was no feeling of gloom. The ocean air and atmosphere gave the occasion an almost pleasant quality. I determined then to share this experience with others. This was the compelling reason for forming Ashes on the Sea, a small, caring company to help in your time of need; a company dedicated to excellence in service and with the highest integrity; a company that is truly interested in you!
