An Undersea Tribute to Life

Sponsored Content provided by Michael Higgins - Family Service Manager, Dignity Memorial

With more and more families choosing cremation than ever before, we are seeing the development of exciting and new options in permanent places of remembrance. This is an important part of planning for a celebration of life, to ensure that loved ones will always have a meaningful place to visit, remember and reflect.
 
At Dignity Memorial, we are honored to be able to provide access to one of the most unique resting places ever conceived — the Neptune Memorial Reef, the largest man-made reef ever created. This is the first and only environmentally friendly sanctuary for those choosing cremation with memorialization.
 
The Neptune Memorial Reef is located three miles off the coast of Key Biscayne, Florida in 40 feet of crystal clear water with a plethora of active marine life that continues to grow exponentially. Ocean enthusiasts, scuba divers, environmentalists, marine biologists, fishermen, and boaters from around the world are flocking to this impressive marine habitat (GPS coordinates N 25° 42.036’, W 80° 05.409’) which will ultimately provide sanctuary for more than 250,000 individuals across its 16 acres of the ocean floor.
 
Memorialization at the Neptune Memorial Reef begins with pre-planning final arrangements to help relieve families of emotional as well as financial burdens. Our compassionate Dignity Memorial experts get all the details set ahead of time, so when a loved one passes his or her cremated remains are carefully blended with natural materials, then molded and secured in this awe-inspiring undersea tribute to life with an engraved copper plaque.
 
For those loved ones who have already been cremated, they can still be memorialized in this impressive underwater setting.
 
Planning ahead for memorialization is a great way to ensure that you and your loved ones will be able to establish a truly memorable place to celebrate a remarkable life. Please contact us to speak with a Certified Neptune Reef Specialist at (910) 799-1686.
