Spend eternity as part of a coral reef

By Leonard Ho - Posted Aug 02, 2011 06:00 AM
Imagine resting in peace surrounded by the reef life we are so passionate about in our living years. Eternal Reefs (USA) provides memorial services for exactly this by infusing cremated remains into Reef Ball artificial reefs. These memorials also help fund coral reef conservation projects. An end marks another's beginning.


According to Eternal Reefs' website

Eternal Reefs creates permanent living legacies that memorialize the passing of a loved one. For families and individuals that choose cremation, Eternal Reefs offers a new memorial choice that replaces cremation urns and ash scattering with a permanent environmental living legacy.

Families and friends are invited and encouraged to participate in the creation of their loved one's memorial reef. From placing your handprint in the damp concrete during the casting, making a rubbing of the bronze plaque during the viewing ceremony, or placing a flag on your loved one's memorial reef during our military honors ceremony, all Eternal Reefs' activities provide peace of mind for everyone involved.


Eternal Reefs partners with The Reef Ball Foundation to create memorial reefs by mixing your loved one's cremated remains into a Reef Ball artificial reef.  Starting at $2,995, the price includes the casting, transport, final placement, and dedication of the memorial reef.  A GPS survey records its location, and the memorial is commemorated with an embedded plaque.

This is a beautiful, fitting, final tribute for any reef lover.
Celebrate a loved one's life with birth of a new reef.
