"To give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;" Isaiah 61:3 KJV
Parkland Peace topics and services:
Standard Settling Service describes a settling service.
Alpha Sites are the diverse parklands and estates in which cremains are settled unless a Distinguished Site or Custom Site is specified.
Distinguished Sites. Four extraordinary settling opportunities are: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, a National Park Service parkland. Score, for settling in a University sports field. Honorably Discharged, for going out with a bang. Family Estate, for burial of cremains.
Custom Sites are locations of significance to you that are not a Parkland Peace site.

Standard Settling Service As your representative, a Parkland Peace officer will settle cremains in an Alpha, Distinguished, or Custom Site. Cremains will be removed from their container, prepared for ecological release, and gently broadcast upon the land. Parkland terrain will be unchanged, save for the presence of the final matter that will soon blend with nature. The service may include messages from loved ones, in the form of letters for the officer to read aloud or a recorded presentation of music and words. Settling service duration is limited to one half-hour. No marker or other items will be left at the scene.
Alpha Site Unless otherwise specified, a settling site will be in an Alpha parkland or estate chosen for you by your Parkland Peace team. The scenery may be of a lake shore, salt water coast, meandering creek, flowering meadow, woodland path or mountain trail. If commemoration is requested in your directives, pictures will be sent to you and a certificate will provide the park name and the GPS coordinates of the release point. The release point will be readily accessible by car and pleasant walk. $150.
Distinguished Site Four specific settling sites and scenarios are available, for the fee that is cited with each description...
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
In August 2011, ABC's Good Morning America viewers voted this national park the MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN AMERICA.
35 miles of Lake Michigan pure water coastline, islands, 21 inland lakes, and hiking trails through glorious forests in Northwest Michigan make this parkland a USA treasure.

An explosives expert will custom tailor a pyrotechnic display for your family, for a dynamic finale. $2,500.
Burial of cremains is offered on a privately-owned family farm in central Texas. A creek flows across this land and into the Colorado River, then into the Gulf of Mexico. Cattle graze contentedly. Wildflowers are abundant, as are the garden delights.
Burial is also offered on a privately-owned estate ringed by ranchlands, in the mountains of southeast Arizona. $300.
Custom Site Do you have a favorite spot, or a place you have always wanted to go, where you would like cremains settled? A Parkland Peace officer may accompany and assist you in settling cremains there. Or, the officer may go to the site that is dear to you, in your stead, to settle cremains. Please contact us to discuss your ideas.
You, Involved Would you like to witness the release of your loved one's cremains, or actively participate in the ceremony? You may do so in a Parkland Peace settling site, accompanied by a Parkland Peace officer. The service price will be the same as if the officer were settling the matter, unaccompanied.
Commemoration Certificate of Settlement with GPS coordinates: mailed $20, emailed $15. Settlement scene photography by the bearer: Three photos, mailed $25, emailed $15. A witness to photograph or video the bearer conducting the settling service. $100. Remembrance in the Halo Memorial Center $100.
Pet Care The cremated remains of a beloved pet will be settled, with appreciation for the joy that he or she has brought to his or her family, for $25. Commemoration is available. If the cremains of a household pet are settled along with the cremains of its person, the pet fee will be waived. Please see the Pets page of this website for details.
Safekeeping for Co-Release We will keep cremains secure until a loved one also passes, and release all remains together. Please contact us for details.
The Directives page in this website will enable you to specify settling services and commemoration services. Please print the Directives page and include it in the package when sending cremains to be settled by Parkland Peace.
