Thank you so much for helping me with the booking of Saturdays Ashes at Sea. It was perfect. The weather was beautiful and the sea was calm. Captain Henk and his crewman were so kind and respectful.
Thank you again for all of your help.
The service provided this morning for my wife's mother was very nice. Captain and crew were pleasant and accommodating.
I just wanted to say thank you. Everything went so well on Friday. The staff was very sweet and the boat was beautiful and clean. Thank you for making my mom's burial at sea/birthday an amazing memory that we will always remember.
Thank you again,
We were very pleased with our memorial at sea. It was the perfect day for it - cloud cover and temperate conditions lending a somber tone to the event. The Captain and his crew were extremely respectful, polite, and skilled at their roles. It all felt very right. Thank you for making a hard time for our family a little easier - allowing us a bit of closure and comfort.
I would like to leave a testimonial about our recent experience with the very gracious Captain and crew of the Annie A in Edmonds, WA.
A group of 12 of us went out into Puget Sound on the Annie A and their very capable and respectful crew last Sunday. It was an overcast morning, but not too windy. We were the family and friends of my Mother-in-law Doris who wished for her ashes to be buried at sea.
The Annie A is a very broad and sturdy vessel which also sees many salmon caught on normal work days! The 45-minute ride N of Edmonds was strong and steady! There is seating on the deck or in the cabin and you can walk all around the boat from stern to bow.
We had a small ceremony in which some prayers and poems were read and even Captain Blake agreed to read aloud one of the selections! After the ashes were buried at sea many also tossed flowers overboard and then the captain circled those several times before heading back.
We felt that for all of us that were saddened by our grief the day was meaningful as we had hoped and it was also spiritual as well. We were very pleased with our experience and are thankful for how we were treated! John H. WA
"Dear all, I want to express my appreciation for today’s scattering of ashes for my cousin, Marybeth Lopez. We were blessed with a beautiful weather day, but also the captain and young crew members were very nice. The experience was low key and simple and well executed, just as it should be. All family and friends were grateful to come together in this way, in spite of the sad occasion." Sincerely, Chris Sisley
"Dear Amber. Today we went out to bury my parents at sea. The crew and captain were wonderful. They were friendly, courteous and helpful. We felt very important while on the boat. Please send them our thanks again for a pleasant day." Sincerely, Lois and Colleen Higgins

“It was a wonderful service because it was what my mother wanted. I was impressed with the little ceremony. It was really nice. I wanted no one but our family on the ship. You accommodated that need. Thanks! My mother wanted our family to go out for a prime rib dinner - odd though that may seem - after we scattered her ashes. We had an early dinner . . . and it was the perfect ending to a fine burial at sea. A year after the fact, I feel really good about it. Thank you very much!” Bob M. HI
“Your services came at a time when we were dealing with the loss of a mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Everyone that attended said what a truly great service you provided. The Captain was very considerate and showed great respect to all of us. The crew member that day was there whenever we needed anything but also left us alone when he wasn't needed. We all will remember that morning as a time of comfort and also as a time to say good-bye. We feel the services you provided were first rate.” Pam J. WA
“I wanted to personally thank you for the caring and professional manner in which you handled my mother's burial service. We could not have asked for a nicer tribute to her. My husband I are in the process of pre-arranging our own services and will be asking specifically for your firm to handle our burial at sea . . . Again, thank you for help. We have already recommended you to another party preparing for arrangements.” Jay M. OR
