CORN­WALL, On­tario - “There is a lit­tle say­ing that if you whis­per I love you to a but­ter­fly it will fly your mes­sage to heaven and to your loved one,” said Sandy Col­lette, or­ga­nizer of the 3rd An­nual Wings of Love, a but­ter­fly re­lease for Hos­pice Corn­wall.

On Sun­day, June 24, 2018, Sandy brought 200 par­tic­i­pants to­gether at the Nav Cen­tre’s Stone House for the re­leas­ing of painted lady but­ter­flies with the hope that they would reach their loved ones with their mes­sages.

Each but­ter­fly costs $30 with most of the cost aid­ing Hos­pice Corn­wall in their work as an end of life care.

Even with dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing but­ter­flies from a sup­plier this year, Sandy was still able to get 160 but­ter­flies into the air and to the loved ones that have left us.
