Releasing butterflies adds a unique and memorable touch to a funeral or memorial service. The butterfly has long been symbolic of freedom, love and new life or the beginning of a new journey. Butterflies flying free can also represent the “setting free of the spirit” and releasing butterflies is a reflective, yet uplifting, experience. Family members and friends may “send their love on the wings of a butterfly” as they each release their own individual butterfly ~ a very touching and personal experience. Alternatively, a mass release of butterflies from one release box… open the lid and fill the sky with an amazing flutter of beautiful butterflies ~ such a unique, symbolic and personal way to commemorate the passing of a loved one… special memories that last forever.
