Down through the years we have facilitated many private memorials on beaches. Everyone gets involved in creating a very poignant tribute to a loved one. Sometimes this can consist of a special piece of sand art incorporating the person’s name. It very much depends on the circumstances and the wishes of the family.
On some occasions we have incorporated our fire pit where participants bring along sticks to be placed in the fire. On some occasions people bring along flowers to place in the sea. We have done some memorials that included spreading the person’s ashes.
We are sensitive to the individual circumstances but try to bring a sense of celebration to these occasions. We see our role as facilitators of these kinds of events, a point of contact to unite a family. These gatherings offer a neutral breathing space.
We also create Family Memorials in mosaic and stained glass. We can incorporate personal mementos into these to make them a very meaningful tribute.
