Burial at Sea Testimonials

“I am writing to thank Joe especially and all the crew of the Sea Star who made my aunt’s burial at sea a wonderfully beautiful experience for everyone involved. This was an extremely emotional and difficult time for me. Joe made sure I was guided and supported throughout as he did all our friends. His compassion and dignity was awe inspiring. His love for the sea, and the beauty it blessed us with that evening was simply amazing. My aunt began her journey to America from England on a boat in 1969 and never returned for good. Casting her ashes on the ocean she had made her home by in California was a beautiful and fitting way of setting her free. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
