Ashes To Rest
Completing the Journey – Do you have someone’s ashes you need to put to rest?
Ashes to Rest: It can be hard to know what to do with a loved one’s ashes and together we can resolve that issue, giving you the satisfaction of knowing you have put your loved one to his or her final rest.
So how do we go about it?
We meet to discuss what you would like by way of informal or more formal ceremony. We create something which honours your loved one and that you are comfortable with. You tell me about your relationship with the person so I can create wording that is appropriate and sensitive. Options for where to dispose of the ashes are considered.
This can be anywhere you choose, near or afar. Some people like them to be scattered in a garden, in a park, in the bush, or by water. Some like them to be scattered at sea or from the air.
On the date we decide upon we meet at the chosen place, or if necessary I can take you there. We speak the words of appreciation and final farewell, and release the ashes in the manner we have chosen.
This helps to give you closure, as we complete the journey for your loved one and leave them in their final resting place.
My work as a Celebrant gives me sensitivity and empathy for working with you to ensure we have the best possible final celebration of your loved one in a fitting, yet relaxed ritual.
