Our Hearts are crushed, and our condolences screams out to the family of our very own Elijah E2 Brown. We love You.
I am so sorry for the loss of this child. Please do not do a balloon release. The balloons do not go to Heaven; they deflate and kill birds and turtles here on earth. No more life needs to be lost.
Heartbreaking. Please consider planting a tree in his honor instead of a balloon release. Something his family and friends can visit and see grow. Please don’t let animals suffer.
