Balloons Released To Heaven

The Broome County Chapter of The Campassionate Friends, a support group offering friendship and understanding to bereaved parents and siblings,
held their annual "Balloons To Heaven" event Monday evening at the Jeanne and John Wilfley Community Park in Port Dickinsen.

Following a dish-to-pass picnic balloons were handed out to all in attendance. Many attached messages to their beloved children who have passed on.

Then, following a brief dedication, the balloons were released all together. It was a beautiful sight watching over 100 colorful balloons sail off toward heaven until they disappeared in the blue.
