Reefs offer an unusual way to spend the afterlife with the ocean

Those that feel special ties to the ocean now have another method to tie their lives to the ocean: Becoming part of an "eternal reef."

An eternal reefAn "eternal reef."The process mixes cremated with concrete that is shaped into reefs that are then placed on the ocean floor where, presumably, the person can forever be tied to the waters and aquatic life they loved.

The reefs carry plaques that allow a more distinguishing mark to who and where someone is laid to rest.

One such company offering the service is Eternal Reefs.
