Honouring loved ones with butterflies was the theme of Saturday’s event

The Abbotsford Hospice Society hosted its second annual memorial butterfly release on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.

Those in attendance were invited to select a Painted Lady butterfly – one of many species that are native to the area – and release it in memory of a loved one.
