The 7th Annual Butterfly & Dove Release was a real celebration! Warm sunshine made for the most perfect day as over 300 guests set free their butterflies, followed by the release of 100 snow-white doves in a spectacular show of beauty. The doves circled the crowd three times, then flew home to Homeward Angels in Landrum, SC. Guests enjoyed a heart-felt program with flute melodies, and readings by Hospice of the Upstate Staff. Each year we hear from participants that the
butterflies and doves bring comfort and peace to their hearts and spirits. This year seemed to be no different as everyone around shared smiles, tears and laughter on that special Sunday afternoon.
“I am sure I will shed many more tears as Gene’s death is still very painful however the memory of yesterday will always bring a smile to my face and my heart.”
