ashes
      #1579115 - 03/30/14 02:51 PM (96.253.195.212)

I know this is a really ugly question. But, We got a call while on island that our daughter passed away. We had to hurry to change our ticket home. this was march 19th. We want to spread her ashes along the shoreline of where she loved to walk while in St.M. any suggestions on a boat that would take us from pelican resort to royal Islander? She loved the time she spent there, and this has to be... any suggestions? We want to do this either this summer or fall. thanks

Do not ever think that is an ugly question, last year I took some of my husbands ashes to Anguilla to one of his favorite spots....the funeral home will give you a travel case & make sure you have a letter from the funeral home, for customs.....it is amazing as soon as I get to the Island it is the first place I visit. kate

So Sorry for you loss.......you might go down to pelican/simpson bay Resort Aqua Marina Office and inquire if they have someone to take you in one of their inflatables along the coast to accomplish your wishes....it wouldn't take more than a half hour round trip...A sunset cruise would bring you by same area but Wouldn't afford you your quiet time and privacy..Best wishes

anon - Agreed this is not an ugly question. I can relate to this, as we are having our son's ashes put in a columbarium in the Catskill Mountains in June.

I'll agree - sorry for your loss. Ours was completely unexpected and the most difficult thing I've ever had to deal with.

I'm glad that you have a meaningful place for her ashes.

Sorry for your loss as well. We were fortunate to have our daughter visit in January. We own a home, and she got to visit for the last time... She had a tough life, and this was a gift for her... We will find the right way to spread her where she found peace.. thanks everyone. But life will never be the same, and questions will never be answered.

I did the same with my Father's ashes several years ago, but I went out on Random Wind and we scattered the ashes at sea. Many have scattered ashes at the waters edge.
Also check with Dave and Adrianna at http://happyhoursxm.com/
they can work with you.

Just want to mention that I did something with my father's ashes that I consider to be really special. I had a local potter make a glaze including Dad's ashes, and we have 2 candle sticks now.
