Releasing balloons helps us say goodbye in a unique way, allowing us to experience greater closure and healing as we "release" our emotions and grief. To make it more personal, write messages of hope and love on the balloons before releasing them. Honoring a veteran or a fallen member of the armed forces with military rites is a time-honored tradition. We can coordinate with the local honor guard and Veterans Affairs office to feature a draped flag over your loved one's casket or urn, the folding and presentation of the flag to the next of kin, the firing of a salute, or any other appropriate tribute to an eligible veteran or active duty service member.
