Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Neptune Society Sherman Oaks, a flagship location of national cremation services provider Neptune Society serving the greater Los Angeles Area, has provided scatter at sea services for 40 years. Following cremation, many families choose a meaningful memorial, a special ceremony and scattering of ashes in a special place. For those along the coast, or with a special love of the ocean, that often means a sea scattering.
Neptune Society's Sherman Oaks, West Covina, and San Pedro offices offer scatter at sea services along with cremation services. This special service is so popular that 35% of those choosing a Los Angeles cremation also choose this sea memorial.
For 14 years, Alice Weiss has captained the Neptune II, leaving Long Beach to navigate three miles out to sea, where Captain Weiss respectfully memorializes each person while conducting the scatterings. Captain Weiss, a licensed minister, has deep respect for her task, marking the precise longitude and latitude of each scattering at sea so that families may later visit the location.
Neptune Society also offers formal scattering at sea memorials where a family and friends, up to 80 people, may join the captain on the journey to sea and participate in a memorial designed only for their loved one. The captain, serving as minister, will conduct a service at the scattering site.
As part of its dedication to honoring those who served our country, Neptune Society Sherman Oaks, arranges services following a veteran cremation and concurrent with the scattering at sea. The military presents a flag to the family and plays Taps from the dock prior to the boat leaving for the service.
Scatter at sea is one of the many ways Neptune Society Sherman Oaks has served the greater Los Angeles area over the last 40 years. It has been an integral part of the community, providing trusted affordable cremation services to help people manage their final needs.
