A nice touch

There are some who really care out there. When Emma Agnew was interred the other day, a specially bred monarch butterfly was released during the service at the graveside.

The butterfly was provided to help the family let go. As butterflies are thought to be deaf, it is the symbol worldwide for those that are deaf, symbolising freedom and independence.
It glided over the heads of her parents ... and their three sons, before disappearing into the skies.

The article is well worth reading about the long list of community people and firms that got behind the Agnew family during the long search and the subsequent funeral. Long may it continue.

A very nice touch, great to see the community spirit.

RIP Emma and my sincere condolences to the family.
