Matt Blaisdell, right, leads a prayer with family and friends of his mother and father who died six weeks apart in 2009. Blaisdell was finalizing his parent's final wishes to have their remains buried underwater in an artificial reef. Blaisdell started Poseidon's Garden, an underwater burial business that creates an artificial reef using cement blocks incorporating cremated remains to memorialize loved ones who have passed away. The company was thought up by David Blaisdell while he was in the hospital waiting for a liver transplant. After getting healthy, Blaisdell and his son, Matt, and father Fill created the business and got their first customer two weeks before Blaisdell died. Lexey Swall/Staff
