My mother attended UCLA during WWII, then met and married my dad who took her to Indiana. She always loved California and the time she spent on Catalina Island. Her wish was to have her ashes scattered off the coast of Catalina. When she passed last year I had no idea how I was going to fulfill this wish. Thankfully I found Jamie Tanabe and A Journey with Wings. I talked to many services – but Jamie had the best credentials by far, and more important, was so wonderful to work with. She took care of everything. The flight was on a perfect day. My husband released my mom over the waters as I read a farewell prayer from her friends and family. A wonderful heartfelt service. I couldn’t leave all of her behind though – so Jamie took care of putting together keepsake urns for my brother, sister and me. If your loved one is cremated, I highly recommend A Journey With Wings for a celebration and memorial service to remember. Jan S.
