Witnessed Ash-Scattering Service

handstoskyOur most popular service. This service allows loved ones to witness the scattering from the ground.

The witnessed ash scattering service is scheduled at a date and time of your choosing and allows for an unlimited number of friends and family to gather at the location in which the witnessed ash scattering will occur. This service creates a beautiful, lasting memory that brings closure with dignity and grace. All will view as the cremated remains are released into the air. They make an elegant trail behind the airplane. They sit on a cushion of air and then disappear. This flight can be coordinated to place with a memorial service on the ground.
