Eternal Ascent Society Offers Pre-Convention Pricing For A License To Offer Its' Patented Process
NFDA Press Release

Eternal Ascent Society, Crystal River, Florida, has announced that attendees at this years' NFDA Convention in Nashville will be able to purchase a License to offer its' patented process for the scattering of cremated remains by releasing them in a giant (5-foot diameter) balloon at a substantially reduced fee.

"Our Balloon Release is elegantly simple," says Eternal Ascent Society Owner, Joan West. "After processing the cremated remains we place them in a 5-foot, biodegradable balloon. The balloon is inflated with Helium inside our patented inflation chamber and transported in the inflation chamber to a site chosen by the family. After a short service we release it to the heavens. Once released, the balloon slowly ascends to a height of approximately 30,000 feet. During the balloonís ascent it expands and at a height of almost 6 miles (where it is 40 degrees below zero) it freezes and fractures, scattering the ashes to the four winds."

For those families that choose cremation over traditional burial, this service provides a beautiful and meaningful way to help bring closure to the grieving process as they send their Loved One on a final flight to the heavens. In the nine years that Eternal Ascent Society has been offering this service to the public they have received many letters from the family and friends of the deceased expressing their thanks and gratitude for helping them find a way to celebrate that individual's life and to say goodbye.

For more information about this truly unique opportunity to offer this service to the families that you serve contact Joan West at or call her at (800) 808-2082.
