Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 17, 2004 -- Today, Eternal Reefs Inc. announced Sarasota and Pensacola, Florida, South Padre Island, Texas, Charleston, South Carolina and Atlantic City, New Jersey as the locations of the next memorial reef sites in the United States. Designed to last 500 years, Eternal Reefs will provide these cities with memorial reefs to develop local environmental ecosystems.

Eternal Reefs, Inc. is the only company in the United States to offer underwater burial at sea in artificial reef balls. For families and individuals that choose cremation rather than burial, Eternal Reefs offers a new memorial option that replaces cremation urns and ash scattering with a permanent environmental living legacy.

Scheduled memorial reef placements include:
--Atlantic City, New Jersey, Monday, September 20th
--Charleston, South Carolina, Thursday, September 23rd
--Pensacola, Florida, Monday, October 11th
--Sarasota, Florida, Monday, October 25th

“The positive response to Eternal Reefs continues to be overwhelming, says Don Brawley, president, Eternal Reefs Inc. “As far as a final resting place, it's not just a memorial for someone passing away. It allows a whole new ecological system to develop, not only for our children, but our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”

Cremation is growing dramatically in the United States, and by 2010, the procedure may be included in 40 percent of funerals, according to the Cremation Association of North America. An astonishing 45 percent of families that have chosen cremation still have the remains at home sitting on a shelf or in a closet.
