Ashes At Sea - Oahu, Hawaii
Free your beloved
(Hawaiian for beloved is mea aloha)
in Hawaiian waters off the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
Rev. Toni Baran
Commissioned by the state of Hawaii
Our direct line on Oahu is:
Please note: We are 3 hours earlier than west coast & 6 hours earlier than east coast time.
Ho'oku'u (free) your Mea Aloha in paradise.
We perform a respectful
on the gentle, tropical waters of Oahu, Hawaii.
Celebration of your beloved may be with or without family & guests.
I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and the sky come to mingle with each other.
Then someone says, "There she goes!"
Gone Where? Gone from my sight, that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There she goes"
there are other eyes watching her coming
and their voices ready to take up the glad shouts,
"Here she comes!"
(No family or guests attending.)
100 loose Hawaiian flowers to be released with your beloved - $40
Attended memorial service at Lanikai Beach with Hawaiian canoe, paddlers and
memorial service with minister on the beach - $400.
7 & 8 a.m. only
We want to have our memorial while the beach is still relatively free of people.
For attended memorials, we have a memorial service on the shoreline.
Beloved's cremains will be placed in seat number 5, of a 6 man canoe.
These wonderful paddlers are volunteers.
A donation is made to their club on behalf of the family.
They will paddle out towards the reef directly offshore from Lanikai Beach.
There will likely be a gentle breeze blowing and the water inside the reef is calm
while the waves outside the reef are breaking into surf on the reef.
The cremains are gently released to the warm waters and to be with God for eternity.
There is not a prepared script to read since we speak from the emotions that we experience at that moment .
Each of the crew, without prompting, then spontaneously and simply say their individual farewells as if they had been a friend.
While they did not personally know the deceased, we all feel a common bond knowing
that we all will experience this moment in time when we go to God.
It is a very tranquil setting.
We sit in silence for a few moments as the ashes settled into the sea, then we paddled back.
Our memorials are respectful and heartfelt…
We feel honored that you allow us to serve your family in this way..
With no family or guests, the fee is $230. Flowers not included.
With attendees, the fee is $400, includes flowers.
I wanted to send many thank you's for your assistance in scattering the ashes of my father.
My family and I all agreed, the service was beautiful and the evening couldn't have been more appropriate if we had tried.
You made the whole eventvery simple and stress free, so if you ever need a recommendation,
I'd be happy to give a glowing endorsement.
The ceremony at sea for my beloved Mother was the perfect place for setting her free.
I am comforted to know that she is finally home among loved ones.
Mahalo for making a difficult journey for me one that I will always cherish. Aloha,
Rev. Toni Baran
