A Celebration of Life Ashes Scatterings at Sea
Memorial at Sea Aboard the Summer Wind
After the death of a friend or loved one, many people find closure and relief in scattering the ashes in a favorite place or memorable location. There is no true right or wrong process for a Scattering at Sea Service. This is a very personal moment that is tailored to the family and friends' preferences.
Captain Adams of the Summer Wind will be happy to recite any of the poems and prayers on your behalf at the Burial at Sea Memorial.
Burial at Sea Prayer: for Sailor
Oh God, we pray thee that the memory of our (family member, Friend) be ever sacred in our hearts,
... and that the sacrifice which they have offered for cause may be acceptable in thy sight.
... and may this sailor find repose with the sea in which he gave his life that we might live.
Into thy hands, oh Lord, we commend the soul of thy servant departed, now called unto eternal rest, and we commit his body to the deep.
Alone I Will Not Be
My comfort will come from the sea.
The stillness of calm waves will gently drift by
I will be as one with the sea.
When the sun sets on the ocean blue, remember me as I will always remember you.
As the sun rises…go live life as full as can be
Apart…you and me…but be at peace for I am free.
There is an appointed time for everything
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven –
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to hurt and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost:
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to Love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
