John and Darlene Cox Memorial Reef

This reef contains the cremains of my husband's grandparents. We were able to mix in the ashes and decorate the reef. Bob also laid the plaque on the reef. We visited grandma and grandpa's burial site 1 week after it was in the water, and then 1 year later. It was surrounded by life in the ocean. As we motored away from the site we were followed by two female spotted dolphins showing off their new babies. (We built the memorial reef through the MBARA memorial reef program: http://www.mbara.org/memorial-reef-program.cfm )
