Thank you for helping with balloon release

Editor, the Advocate:

The Compassionate Friends of Victoria would like to thank everyone who helped with the 18th Annual Balloon Release in October. We are so grateful for the help of Bro. Gary Moses, Pete Ordones, Dolores Cano, Julian and Irene Martinez, Buddy Perkins, Mike Cano, AOC and Victoria Parks and Recreation. Also, thank you to everyone who jumped in and lent a helping hand when we needed it, from airing up balloons to tying them closed and then tying them to the fence until someone came to choose that special color to send up with a message to their loved one. Many thanks to each of you who attended the ceremony, and we hope it helped you with your grief.

Doris Perkins, The Compassionate Friends of the Victoria Area, Victoria
