Jason LeValley, left, Richard Shaw, right, and Matt Blaisdell,  second from right, hoist a concrete block that holds the remains of Blaisdell's father along with a plaque that bears his name, off the back of a boat and in to the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral's Poseidon's Garden, an underwater burial business, 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
