The Neptune Memorial ReefTM is an awe-inspiring and affordable memorialization option that is a fitting alternative to traditional burial. An enduring habitat for marine life, the Reef is also a reaffirmation of life after life. Photograph courtesy of Neptune Memorial reef

Not every business calling itself a society is a nonprofit.
