While I understand the negative impact balloons have on our environment, it doesn’t stop me from loving these photos! The Hospice organization I volunteer for used to sponsor an event every year where family members could attach a note to a balloon and send it into the heavens for the loved ones they had lost. It was such a beautiful, healing moment when the balloons were released in unison! As the organization strives to find a memorial event equally as meaningful, but more Eco-friendly; for me anyway, nothing seems to hold the sentiment that this one did. I miss it!
