It is an honor to have the ashes of our beloved dog spread in the Rocky Mountains by Marc Arnold

The owners of, Bob and Susana Kerstein, lost their loving and devoted 11-year old border collie, Emma. They wondered how to best commemorate her passing. Rather than keeping her ashes in an urn, or pouring them on the ground, they opted for a more dignified yet natural memorial scattering, whereby Emma’s cremains were solemnly released high above the Rocky Mountains.

Aerial Tribute, a Colorado-based company, performs Ascension Scattering, the release of cremated remains (“cremains” or “ashes”) from graceful sailplanes dispersed into naturally occurring columns of rising air known as “thermals,” in such a manner that simulates the flight techniques of soaring birds. This results in a unique and inspirational resting place; an eternal memorial, observable by one’s loved ones who need only to look heavenward to remember those who have passed.

“While the vast majority of Ascension Scattering services are performed for human family members,” says Marc Arnold, Aerial Tribute’s founder, “from time to time we are also asked to help families like the Kersteins, to honor their non-human family members as well.”

The Kersteins are co-founders of, the Internet’s leading buyer and seller of collectible stocks and bonds. Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the term used to describe the hobby of collecting bygone stock and bond certificates. “Out of our inventory of thousands of certificates, ranging in value from a few dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars,” states Bob Kerstein (, “the one that has no market resale value, but is treasured the most by our family, is the certificate hanging on our wall --- a remembrance of the scattering of Emma’s ashes from that soaring sailplane.” - Omega Enterprises is a Colorado LLC, and does business as Aerial Tribute. It provides dignified, natural and inspiring scattering services to families seeking special memorial service offerings. Aerial Tribute is not affiliated with any funeral home or crematorium.

Sailplane pilots experience the sky using the same flight techniques as soaring birds. Aerial Tribute was founded to connect and share this form of flight with families seeking a meaningful final disposition of their loved one’s memory.
