One of the greatest blessings is to receive your heart-warming and amazing letters. Here are a few more:
“Dear Pat and Sean,
Our family would like to thank you very much for the wonderful day you assisted to create in our memories in honor of my parents. You were both able to accommodate my daughter's visit from Japan, as well as have the Honor Guard. The Honor Guard was very special, especially for my grandson, who was really moved by this portion of the service. I know it wasn't easy getting people together on a week's notice, but you did and we thank you for the beautiful and respectful salute and playing of taps.
The boat ride and spreading of ashes was especially wonderful. The kids were amazed and excited to see the sea lions, pelicans, and so many dolphins. This was very nice, and I know my parents would have truly wanted this for them. It almost seemed meant to be and very spiritual. Joining the ashes and watching them spread into the sea was magical. The ashes seemed to shimmer and sparkle as they spread, and as they floated away, it looked like their spirits were swimming away in the water. This was very beautiful and emotional, but our family really needed it. Even placing the roses in the water and taking our time to talk about memories, allowed each person to participate and we never felt rushed. The trip ended with more fun as the kids got a turn at the steering wheel. It was nice to begin and end with something happy and fun for them, yet to take time to remember my parents in a special and emotional way. This definitely helped bring closure. We will highly recommend your services to anyone interested if the future. Please continue to do this for families. Thank you again.”
Thank you so much for helping our family have a beautiful memorial for my neighbor Jim. I'd never been to a memorial like it, and now I have a memory of the beautiful day on the ocean with Jim's family and friends.
I was impressed with your ministry and reflected what a blessing it must be to the people you serve. You and Sean are there as agents of God's love and light in what must be one of the saddest and darkest times in people's lives. God bless you for the work you do. May He continue to bless people through you.”
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.
