Each year the local Bereaved Parents group has a Sunday when you can release some butterflies. This year it was held June 14.
In the past few weeks they have been doing a lot of work in the area of Springbank Park to upgrade the area with a much nicer sawdust trail, many more plants, clearing of some brush and the building of the second monument.
Instead of names listed on white coreboard, the names -- including David's - are listed on the new monument that is the same and stands back to back with the first monument. Another day I will get some pictures of the area now.
Both daughters, 4 grandchildren, 1 boyfriend, 2 of my friends, my Sister and Brother-In-Law all attended. Had rained all morning which meant the hot dog lunch was cancelled. The rain did stop for when they were doing a brief ceremony to mark the new monument.
As we moved out to the open area the sun came out and the weather was really quite warm. It was nice to have the various families open their own butterflies this year and I think they enjoyed it. Didn't take long for the butterflies to take flight.
