Losing a loved one is never easy.   That's a hurt that dulls over time but the pain never goes away.   While some can move on from the loss of a loved one, some are so torn by the pain that they don't know how to go back to life after the loss.

That's why the Hope and Healing Place is here in Amarillo.  The Hope and Healing Place is:

A safe place to promote the healing journey for grieving children, families, and individuals.

They offer support groups to those dealing with a loss of a loved one, whether that be a spouse, a parent, a infant, or a person to suicide.  They help the residents of Amarillo heal after a loss.   It's help available to all ages.

Coming up on Saturday, September 8th.  The Hope and Healing Place is hosting Wings of Hope.  Wings of Hope is a time for those grieving the loss of a loved one to come together and remember.  The Hope and Healing Place invites you to come out and join in on this amazing occasion.  They will be releasing over 500 butterflies into Memorial Park.   The event will take place from 10am - 12n.

The event includes a walk, activities, crafts and the butterfly release.

You can also purchase a butterfly to release in honor of a loved one.

The event is open to the public.
