Ashes to the Wind: A Guide to Scattering Ashes

Scattering the cremains of a d one can be a traditional and moving way to say farewell, but is not as simple and clean as the phrase “scattering ashes,” implies.

If done incorrectly, rather than a moving farewell ceremony, scattering the ashes (which aren’t even really ashes) of your d one can be an emotionally draining and unpleasant experience. To ensure that the ceremony goes well, instead of merely choosing a spot and attempting to throw the ashes to the wind, cast them carefully downwind, pour them or place the scattering urn into a trench, rake them into loose soil (as at a scattering garden), or release them from a boat or plane.
