“I feel that this is as much a gift to myself as it is to my family. I have designed my remembrance ceremony with the help of Spirit Vessel down to the last detail. I’m excited and relieved that I will be honored in the way I’ve chosen, and that my family will have the peace of mind knowing they’ve carried out my final wishes.”

“Creating a ceremony to honor my mom, was deeply meaningful for everyone involved. Now I find comfort in sitting near the altar I created for her in my home, whether to tell her about my day, how much I miss her, or just to be near her. Thank you Spirit Vessel, for giving me such comfort.”

“On behalf of our family, we want to thank you for working with us to accommodate our need for an urn and remembrance ceremony during which we could scatter Mom and Dad's ashes. The ceremony was beautiful and we will cherish the memory.”

 “When it became apparent that my younger sister would soon pass away from cancer, our family encouraged her to have a celebration of life gathering, especially for her husband and children to remember how greatly she is loved. She helped design the ceremony which was tragically beautiful. We shared laughs, tears, hugs and stories. We all felt grateful for the experience that we were able to honor her with and the ideas we got from Spirit Vessel.”

"I discovered Spirit Vessel by accident while on the Internet one day. I liked the idea of a personalized grief ceremony as soon as I read about it. My father, who suffers from dementia, wishes to be cremated, and as soon as I shared this idea with my mother, we agreed that creating a ceremony for him was what we wanted to do. We have chosen our ceremonial package, and my mother and I have found comfort in planning for my father’s passing and giving him the living memorial ceremony that he would want.”

“Before my mother passed she asked if we could go over her last wishes. Knowing mom wasn’t the type to have the traditional funeral wake, I wasn’t shocked to hear that she had found an alternative way. She designed her memorial service ceremony with Spirit Vessel and I can’t begin to tell you how incredibly helpful that was. We gathered as family and friends and gave her the celebration she asked for. Every detail was thought of, it was amazing.”

“I am grateful to have been given the confidence and courage to gather friends and family in ceremony. The passing of our dad was hard on us all, yet the ceremony experience allowed us to come together and share our love for him. Spirit Vessel supported us to create a beautiful space and to support one another as a result. Thank you.”


“I would encourage anyone to work with Spirit Vessel on designing their grief ceremony. They were instrumental in empowering me to organize a ceremony for my grandmother that I will forever be grateful for.”
