Memorial Butterfly Releases

BR1-1.jpg We invite you to celebrate your loved one in a special way by participating in one of our upcoming butterfly release benefits. In addition to being a beautiful way to remember those we love, these events raise funds for Alive Hospice. When you purchase a butterfly, you help bring care to others when they need it most.

Prior to the release, we will hold a brief celebration of life service with inspirational readings and music.

Please join us!
