Every year we hold a family event in the Summer months to remember our loved ones
Every person attending will have the chance to light a candle in memory of every loved one they come to remember – not one per family- one per lost loved one – there is scope to create a massive visual effect of candles whose flames show the spirit of our loved ones dancing in the flame and spreading the warmth of their love throughout the lives of all those mourn just as they did when they were alive. This will be a tribute that ensures that their spirit lives.
During the memorial service – everyone will be given a butterfly on a stick! They will have a label and be encouraged to add a label with a message in memory of that person and with that name on the label and these are attached to the stick and at the end of the service every person will be invited to place the Butterfly into the ground and in the breeze the wings will move signifying that their memory is alive in our hearts.
Afterwards, people will be invited to have tea/coffee/hot chocolate and butterfly cakes and share memories with others before heading home.
