During my Son's wedding they had a butterfly release in honor of their little two year old daughter in Heaven. One of the butterflies flew up, came back and landed on my son's jacket. She would not leave, staying right there on Brian for the longest, longest time. You have to look close because the butterfly is the same color as his jacket tie and handkerchief. It was incredible!

Wedding Butterfly Release In Honor Of Willow
During my son and daughter-in-law's wedding, they had a butterfly release in honor of their two year old little Angel in Heaven, Willow. All the butterflies flew away except one that was a beautiful orange color. She flew up and then came back and landed on Brian's jacket, and did not want to fly away. Was that a sign from our Willow that she was with us? Probably so!

You bet it was! In Japan they believe departed loved ones turn into butterflies. After my Aunt Sumiko's funeral, a big white butterfly flew into the house and everyone knew it was her. When my mom was undergoing chemotherapy, two butterflies would fly around her every time she walked into the building, even in the winter. We knew it was dad and Aunt Sumiko. On her last visit, there were no butterflies so we knew her cancer was gone and tests showed that it was. Our loved ones do not forget us, that precious child is still with you. (10/21/2008)

Many years ago, when my stepmother died, a monarch butterfly landed on my brother's shoulder and stayed there for a long, long time. We believed it was a sign from our mom. In the Christian religion, a butterfly is a symbol of new life.

Yes I believe it was Willow, letting them know she is still around. I lost my husband last year and I have seen more butterflies since then ever before. Plus grandson and I went to a butterfly conservatory and a butterfly landed on me and I knew it was my hubby letting me know he's still watching over us.

Great story and thanx so much for sharing, Grammar (10/22/2008)

I have heard a GREAT many stories about butterflies landing on people at funerals. And in such a way I would have no surprise what-so-ever if I was told there was a connection with the departed one.

I spend a lot of time outdoors and see butterflies, but none land on me - even in a butterfly enclosure. There is almost no doubt in my mind that this had something to do with Willow. (05/05/2009)

I believe butterflies are signs from people we love. The morning my Papa died, I asked him to send me a butterfly, and I had 13 in all shapes and colors fly near me. It definitely was Willow (05/27/2009)
