Butterfly Funeral

Belinda Fairchild, April 16, 2019

“I remember when I was a young girl living in Chalk River I had my grandparents come visit us. I had caught a monarch butterfly and it soon died. Grandpa (Robert Kelm) seen this and helped me put it in a match box and bury it near a location I chose near the crabapple tree in our yard and we did a ceremony before we finished burying it. “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust” he said . I never heard that before and it was cute. Thx grandpa.”
