In the book, a unique kind of memorial service was used, using a reef. It is a great way for "families and friends to participate in the creation of their loved one's memorial reef as much as the wish", (Eternal Reefs). Author, Ta'Shay Mason spoke with Eternal Reefs to get an understanding of the process of making a reef ball and how the dedication works.
