Omega Society offers additional options for those who choose
to personalize their services in a special way or select from a variety
of special upgrades.
those wanting to witness the scattering of remains at sea, Omega offers
a personalized burial at sea ceremony aboard a private yacht, White
Light. This meaningful and beautiful ceremony at sea provides families
with an opportunity to privately memorialize the life of their loved
one while providing closure in a serene yet stunning setting. Docked
in Newport Harbor, the boat is a completely renovated and elegantly
appointed 67' Chris Craft yacht, not a sport fishing boat nor small power boat. Priced according to the number of passengers (1-6 people at $1,185, 7-49 people at $1,360) each private charter lasts approximately 1.5 - 2 hours and serves only your family members and only your loved ones cremains are scattered. Our captain will provide
beverages, fruit and vegetable platters, music, and a flower for each guest. He will perform a simple, meaningful
ceremony with a reading, disperse the remains, initiate a flower toss into the water, and then circle the site in a Circle of Tribute before heading back
to the harbor. unlike other charter services, there is no additional charge for weekend charters. This service is also available to families where the cremation was performed
elsewhere. Families can also choose to add, at an additional cost, a biodegradeable urn, a biodegradeable floral arrangement (both of which can be placed in the water) and/or white doves which can be released at the end of the service (see below). Without exception, families call to share with us
their overwhelming satisfaction with their experience as a lasting tribute to their loved one..
Omega Society can arrange a nearby location for a private memorial service,
with or without the remains present, where family and friends can gather
to commemorate the life of their loved one. Omega also has contacts
for ministers, musicians, and florists.
release of white doves at the conclusion of a funeral or memorial service
on land or at sea is yet another opportunity to provide a breath taking,
personal touch to a service. Reasonably priced according to the number
of doves requested, doves add a symbolic and poignant final tribute to the life
of a loved one, and provide a special feeling of peace, serenity
and awe at the conclusion of a service.
years, traditional funeral homes have held families hostage in the
of caskets. As a cornerstone profit center in funeral service, funeral
homes have battled to prevent the outside purchase of caskets. The
has since stepped in to prohibit any funeral home from preventing a
family from purchasing a casket elsewhere, allowing families to
shop intelligently. In our quest to assist families in keeping costs
down, The Omega Society offers a complete line of American made, high quality,
caskets at the most affordable prices anywhere -- even less than the
discount stores. Our price-competitive caskets are available to
families using our services and those using the services of another
funeral home. Often, families think that they will save money by buying a casket at Costco or online. However, they may not realize is that there could be delays in shipping or damage to the casket, all of which can effect the service date. Omega Society can provide an equally low cost casket and make sure that the casket arrives on time and without damage.
keeping with our core philosophy of offering a complete line of high
quality products and services without the high price, The Omega Society
offers a full selection of beautiful cremation urns, customized granite headstones and high quality burial vaults (from the same manufacturer as offered by other expensive, high-end funeral homes) and a full selection
of abundant floral arrangements, all at exceptionally affordable prices.
