As you search for Mesa cremation services, you know you want to honor your loved one in a way that reflects their last wishes and/or their lifestyle. Where and how to release their ashes is one of your main concerns. Here are some ideas that may make a Mesa cremation easier for you and your family:
Consider taking your loved one’s ashes (or at least some of them, as many people do keep a portion in an urn at home) on a vacation cruise with the family to a shared favorite destination. Carnival cruise line is one company that permits ashes scattering within certain guidelines on their ships.
One of Arizona’s state parks can be a beautiful ending to your Mesa cremation. However, different rules may apply between each one. Bryce Canyon National Park does allow ash releases, but with certain conditions.
If the deceased was a sci-fi enthusiast, or astronomy student, Celestis offers many packages for journeying into the final frontier. From a trip into orbit and back to Earth, to a more adventurous journey into deep space, you have different options. This would truly be a stellar ending to a Mesa cremation commemoration.
If your loved one was an avid traveler or aviation enthusiast, having their ashes scattered via airplane is a way to acknowledge them by the way they lived.
If your family member loved to snorkel, or underwater sea life, The Memorial Reef (east of Biscayne Bay in Florida) project takes ashes to create underwater reefs. Families and loved ones are allowed to dive in or snorkel to watch the reefs develop over time.
Sometimes an ashes release can be simple. If the deceased had a strong relationship with their parents, scattering the ashes on their parents’ graves can be a comfort to the family.
