Over 360 beautiful painted lady butterflies were released in memory of loved ones! Many participants gathered with families and friends they had not seen since the beginning of the pandemic. Some honored loved ones at cemeteries and memorial sites, and others found comfort in their own backyard, in the mountains, and elsewhere. One participant shared, “It was a joy to be part of celebrating the memory of my dad and friend – and especially spending time with all of you who make a difference!.” Another said, “Wow, what a beautiful event! Thank you for putting this together, and thank you for all you do.”
