When a loved one passes away, it’s natural to want to send them off in a memorable way. A burial at sea is certainly an emotionally embracing and picturesque option. Families often do a burial at sea to grant the wishes of their loved ones. Often for those who love the sea, their final request may be to be one with nature.
Depending on the outlook of the family members, a sea burial can be either a solemn occasion or one of great joy. Either way, a burial at sea is a somewhat intimate ceremony as only a limited number of people can be accommodated by the boat.
Also, depending on the type of burial this will be, it may require permits and procedures to ensure the remains are properly put to sea. To make it a meaningful occasion, be aware of the procedures required before making a final decision.
