“Dear Jamie, I’m finally getting around to writing you this thank you letter for your involvement in our final day with our Mother Ruth L. Walker at Monument Point, Laguna Beach on Feb. 6th, 2016. I can’t tell you how excited I was to discover your wonderful service you provided us. When I was making final arrangements with Gregg Walker of Walker’s Funeral Home in Corona we were in his room with caskets and the such, when I spied the picture of your plane on the wall and asked Gregg what was that all about. Of course he told me what you did and I was hooked.
My Mother loved, loved to fly and saved every airline ticket she ever had as she was originally from ova Scotia and would travel back on occasion. Anyway, she always wanted to be buried at Sea with “Neptune Society” she had joined it many years ago and it seemed so boring to me and only a few of us could accompany her on her final journey, it didn’t make sense to me. Anyway, Gregg told me how we could arrange the scattering with you and I couldn’t have been happier and so excited for what was to come. It really was an exciting day and sad at the same time.
So as you saw, we had a nice size group there to witness her final disposition at Monument Point. We go visit her often and reflect on that day and I’ll never forget your plane coming into sigt and you circled our position twice, headed south and turned around into the wind. All the time we had Frank Sinatra playing in the background “fly Me to The Moon”. You approached and made the release, it was so beautiful. But what choked me up was when Gregg said to you “Great job Jamie” and your reply, I’ll always hold dear to me, you said ” It was an honor”. How wonderful of you to do this, so special…
I just wanted you to know how special you are and the service you provide. It made the day and it will be a day we never forget. The music, the plane ride (her last). She would have been so happy to know we gave her one more plane ride. Thanks Again.-Gary.”
“Hello Jamie- Yesterday I received the beautiful plaque commemorating my brother’s scattering over the ocean near Dana Point. I want to thank you very much for your kindness, professionalism and sensitivity in handling the whole event. You have taken a lot off my mind. I immediately felt comfortable with you and had no doubt that you’d do a wonderful job for us. My best regards- Karoline” 12/02/2017
“When my aunt died, I had the task of finding out out to scatter her remains along with my uncle’s and their three scotties. She wished them to be scattered in the mountains near where they lived, in Glendale. The mortuary thought it would be difficult to have them scattered in the mountains and said the ocean would be easier. They really were not helpful on that subject.
Finding the website, “A Journey With Wings,” was a huge blessing to me. Jamie listened to what I wanted. She went above and beyond in helping me. She actually found a municipal wilderness park in Glendale she had never used before. She approached the park warden, who told her he needed to contact the city council. They approved the scattering in their park. It was perfect! It was in the mountains as my aunt and uncle wanted. It was also in the city they had lived in for so long.
My family had a memorial tea for my aunt and uncle. Afterwards, we drove five miles to the wilderness park for the scattering. We waited a few minutes and then Jamie’s airplane appeared. She had her partner, Kris, with her. They circled three times as we waved from below. Then the ashes were released in a long trail. When finished, Jamie and Kris waved good-bye to us by wiggling the plane. The weather was great, the setting beautiful.
I had never been involved with a scattering of remains before. Jamie walked me through it, told me what to do, step by step. She got the permits and permissions. It was a very touching ceremony for my family.
Thank you, Jamie.”
“Dear Jamie and Kris- Thank You for support during the planning process for the scattering of my parents ashes. It was memorable. Thank you for the photographs as well.”- Maria G. 11/14/2015
