Elizabeth Marie Nelson Reef

Beth and I loved fishing, especially at or favorite place Crooked Island. We first learned of the Memorial Reef program watching Panhandle Outdoors with Winston Chester every morning with our coffee. We had discussed it with each other and had decided it was what we would like to do. I had no idea it would be this soon, she had just had her 59th birthday a week before her passing. The reef program is very special and I’ve been sharing all my pictures and telling everyone about it, have had so much positive response and many people have said they are going to seriously look it to it for themselves. Thank You MBARA and Walter Marine for this most wonderful way to Honor and remember my beloved Beth. One Florida Limestone Artificial Reef deployed on 22 Apr 2017.
