“My children and I were selected as the first-ever people to release butterflies at this event nine years ago after we lost their dad, and my husband, David. We continue to hold a special place for it now, as we did then. After suffering and sadness, the butterfly release represents freedom and hope of better days for us and for the special person we lost. It reminds us of our blessings and makes us feel gratitude for what we have had and for the opportunity to look at life in a new way.” -Tammy Caron, Butterfly Release participant
