The airborne scattering of cremated remains above a scenic or memorable
setting gives closure to the cremation process, while providing peace and comfort to those left behind. Although airborne scattering seems exotic, it is in fact a dignified and beautiful means of completing
the circle of life. Its cost is in keeping with the overall economics of Cremation.
Cremation and scattering open many more memorial choices
than traditional in ground burial.
For many, to be scattered above a place that holds special
significance is a meaningful choice. Airborne scattering gives one that option. For others, it is the symbolic nature of the freedom of flight, and the release into
the winds and sky to begin the journey to only imagined heights and destinations.
Airborne release has these advantages over the limited
areas served by a boat, the spreading of the ashes into a common section of ground in a cemetery, or the remains being confined
in the wall of a Columbaria.
For those left behind, the focal point of the memorial
becomes not a marker in a cemetery, but the memories of the person, and the place of scattering, as they are encountered during
the patterns of daily life. Images of the California Coast, the lighthouse at Santa Cruz or Pigeon Point, the golf courses of Pebble Beach, or the Golden Gate Bridge invoke memories of the person who was scattered nearby. When the remains of your loved one are scattered by air, each sunset becomes an ongoing memorial, no matter
where you are when that sunset is observed.
A common misconception concerning scattering is that surviving
family members have no place which to visit and remember. In fact, a scattering
location can be chosen which provides a place to visit that has far more memories, emotional attachment and scenic beauty
than the grounds of a grave filled cemetery.
If you have taken the pro-active step of planning in advance
of your needs, part of your plan should be to specify what to do with your cremated remains.
Cremation is supposed to simplify. However, by offering so many options, it has the effect of becoming overwhelming. Unless you have been specific with regard to your wishes, the finality of scattering can paralyze, and
often the result is that nothing is done. The ashes are taken by surviving family
members and kept on a shelf in a closet. The closure that is so necessary in
the grieving process is never achieved. The ashes may not comfort, and can become
a silent burden.
The airborne release of cremated remains offers closure
in a legal, dignified manner, over a location that is scenic or holds special significance, and does so in a manner that is
in keeping with the philosophy of cremation. It is an appropriate choice when
exploring options concerning the means and place of final rest.
