scattering of ashes
Just as it sounds, this is a ceremony to release the ashes of the deceased over water or into/on the ground. Like the committal service, some may choose to only have this type of memorial experience. This ceremony signifies the freedom your loved one has in the place that he/she would have liked to remain forever.
No matter how long you have kept the ashes of your loved one(s), this release ceremony can be a profound time of blessing and transition when you are ready to release them.
Much like the committal service, some families only wish for the scattering of ashes to take place. In Colorado, there are very few limits on where one can scatter ashes. To learn more about scattering of ashes, refer to this website for burial and cremation laws in Colorado:
I am a lover of the outdoors, if you are interested in hiking to a particular destination for this ceremony, I am willing and able. Also, if you are unable to hike to a particular area, I am willing and able to do so, and the ceremony will be documented for you.
