Butterfly & Dove Release- May 21, 2017

Each of us can relate to the life of a butterfly—our life journey takes us through many different changes and challenges. When we embrace these changes, what seemed impossible can be transformed into beauty. On the Wings of Hope—Butterfly and Dove Release is a unique opportunity to reserve a Painted Lady Butterfly or White Dove in honor of someone special. The highlight of the celebration in the Hospice House Mediation Gardens is the mass release of the butterflies followed by a flight of beautiful white doves. Their release symbolizes freedom, happiness, and hope.
