I wanted to thank you again for such a beautiful celebration yesterday for Mark. We all felt so good about the spreading of the ashes and all the hospitality provided by you and your husband. We couldn't have asked for anything better...Mark would have been so proud.

Many thanks to you and your husband for making the farewell to my sister a pleasant experience. The caring and sensitive way that you performed the scattering of ashes will remain a good memory for us. It was so befitting that it was done in the waters that Sonia enjoyed so much. We enjoyed meeting both of you and your boxer dog and have good photos to share with our family.

Captain Dawn provided a wonderful experience for my best friend’s wife who laid her husband’s ashes to final rest in the waters off Miami Beach.  Being local, Capt. Dawn was able to coordinate with us a day where the seas were very favorable.

We certainly made the right choice in choosing Captain Dawn’s New Choice Burials.  She made us feel very comfortable as my sister and I buried our brother at sea in Miami Beach.

I have known Captain Dawn since childhood and could not think of a better person to handle my personal tragedy.  She has a bona-fide concern for other people and makes sure everyone feels good about what they are doing.

You and your husband made my brother's last trip a beautiful, healing experience. My mother, my sister and I don't have enough words to thank you both for treating us like family. This private ceremony allowed us to feel that my brother is now really in a wonderful place. I hope you can help more families overcome these difficult times through such a meaningful ceremony. All the best to both of you,

Captain Dawn & her team truly are very caring, considerate, and very professional. The farewell ceremony of spreading the ashes was a very pleasant experience. Since Captain Dawn is a local, she was able to expertly navigate the South Florida waters. We were made to feel comfortable with a wonderful experience."


Thank you so much for sharing your pictures. Thanks so much for being so kind and making the process so peaceful. Thanks

Capt. Dawn, I was blown away. The pictures were absolutely beautiful !!!! You were right about the rose petal tribute against the blue waters!! So striking and perfect! I have been busy sharing your pictures with family here and across the country. I am drinking up all the praise for selecting you. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I realize this was a business arrangement, yet you were so gracious, kind and caring that we felt like we were dealing with a family member. Someone who knew and loved William as we did. We truly appreciate your sensitivity in handling every aspect of William's final journey; from the first empathetic phone call; to keeping us posted with periodic planning updates; waiting for late family members; your narrative from the ocean and those beautiful pictures - you went above and beyond! We are comforted in knowing that William is at peace now and, with your help, we were able to give him a very special and splendid "Homegoing" - like no other!

Again, Thank you so much!
