"I saw God's hands working here when I was searching online for this service because I was actually typing in another company that the Mortuary had given us to use, but your website was all I could find. I tried and over again to find the company that I was referred to but again, your website was all I could find. I got the message to listen to God and call you. He was right as He always is that you were who we should use for mom's burial at sea and so I called you and booked a reservation. When I went back in to show my children your site and what you provide for loved ones, the other sites reappeared. Isn't it awesome the way God works?"
Isn’t that an amazing letter? Its letters like these that make us feel good (a little ‘pat-on-the-back’) and gives us direction in how we proceed to help others.
With the same philosophy in establishing our sister company, The Last Watch, we seek ways to 'give back'. Here is a partial list of some of those companies we are involved with and contribute to their wonderful causes:
The Heart of Sailing
Giving Children Hope
The Orange County Rescue Mission/ Village of Hope
Emergency Missionary Services
Children Around the World
The Festival of Arts, Laguna Beach
Brea Baptist Church
Two Harbors 4th of July Celebration, Catalina Island
Nehemiah Vision Ministries

Environmental Nature Center, Newport Beach
KECK Graduate Institute Scholarship
City of Brea War Memorial
Avalon Bagel, ‘Paying-it-Forward’
The American Legion Yacht Club, Newport Beach
American Legion Post 291, Newport Beach
City of Hope
Catalina Island Mooring Services
Just as we influence others, we wish to reward those who show the same heart as us. Many more acts of kindness can be guaranteed through our foundation.
For the State of California, the Secretary of State and Attorney General, Department of Justice, and Department of Consumer Affairs have awarded a non-profit, public benefit, charitable trust designation to The Last Watch Foundation to provide funeral services to help the Military and their families. We are the only organization in the United States to be awarded this honor. The State has also given us license to perform the scattering of ashes at sea. If a donation to The Last Watch is ever received, those funds are deposited directly into The Last Watch Foundation.
