Recently, a grieving family called me to see if it was a possibility to scatter their loved ones ashes at sea in Hawaii. YES, this is a wonderful way to memorialise your special person. There is nothing more healing than being out on the ocean to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Life Memorial at sea, Oahu, Hawaii.
Not only were we blessed with a beautiful water day, a mum and calf humpback whale showed up to give an extra blessing. An unexpected whale watching cruise absorbed the sadness of the occasion and the family on board felt truly blessed:
“Dear Capt Gaelyn,
We have all said that his farewell could not have been more perfect even if we had scripted the event. It was so peaceful and perfect for each of us to have our intimate moments with him then let him go. I know that he is now exactly where he wanted to be. That is a huge comfort. We are all re-charging our Aloha spirit for our return to the mainland. You will never know how very much we appreciate how perfectly you aided our final farewell to our Bill. Thank you is inadequate but all we can offer.”
