After a loved one has passed on, ceremony arrangements are among the first things that need to be taken care of. You can save time and relieve yourself from stress by having a burial at sea ceremony.
Scattering of Ashes
Most burial at sea ceremonies involve scattering of ashes. This initially involves a cremation, and does not require a casket to be made for the departed. Ashes can be put into a special container or urn until they are spread in the ocean.
With a burial at sea, you can select different locations for the ashes or a casket to be put in. In terms of regulations, burial with a casket is more strictly regulated. The Environmental Protection Agency does require that the site be at least 3 nautical miles from land. Upon consulting with your family, you may choose a location that offers significance to the departed. Your charter can assist you in this matter by providing you with several options to consider.
If the loved one was in the navy or had some other ties to the sea, then they would have loved a burial at sea ceremony. Their final resting place is going to be the ocean. They can become one with the sea and live out their existence in peace. The waters and the sunset all leave a lasting image that you and others can cherish forever.
Saying goodbye to a loved one for the last time is hard. Through beautiful and symbolic burials at sea, you can give them the ceremony that they deserve.
