Memorial Butterfly Release  

A healing experience for the whole family.

Every year many residents of the Fraser Valley grieve the death of a loved one. At the Abbotsford Hospice Society alone, 79 people passed away as residents of Holmberg House last year. Abbotsford Hospice Society seeks to make the final journey meaningful and respectful for all people in care and their families. To honor this journey, as well as recognize and celebrate the lives that have passed, AHS has held the Memorial Butterfly Release annually since 2016. This is for those who wish to remember a loved one as well as those who are celebrating life.

Tanglebank Gardens, located at 29985 Downes Rd in Abbotsford, continues to generously provide the location for the Memorial Butterfly Release. The event included a complementary BBQ, string quartet, face painting, a DIY Zen garden station for adults and balsa wood airplane/floral headband stations for kids. The event culminated with our Butterfly Release celebration of life and transition.
