BALLOONS FOUND !!

We're adding this page for record of the balloon memorials that have been found.

 

On November 7, 2008, Lila Grace would have been one year old.

 

We released balloons in her memory.  We wanted to send off 86 in all- one for each day of her life, but the weather was rainy and cold with down drafts and the balloons didn't want to go up.  We gave up after about ten balloons.  We didn't think they'd make it much farther than the neighbors farm, but after four/five months we started to get messages, letters and emails from people finding the balloons. 

 

We are planning to send off the rest of the balloons that wouldn't go that day, in hopes that her memory will reach even more people.  We miss our Lila Grace oh so much- but this helps lighten our hearts and brighten our days.  Each balloon found has added to her story.

 

God Bless!
