Our mission is to celebrate the lives of all children. One of the ways we do that is by coming alongside and supporting families who have lost a child. Because one of our greatest fears is that our children will be forgotten, our 15th annual Day of Remembrance on Saturday, October 28, 2017, will be a special time to remember and celebrate our children no longer with us.

The ceremony includes a roll call of the children represented, with each name spoken out loud, songs and brief words about grief and concludes with a live butterfly release. Each family is given a handmade personalized lace angel with their child’s name as a keepsake of the day. T-shirts with the children’s names listed on the back and/or extra butterflies (each family is guaranteed one butterfly per child registered) can also be ordered through pre-registration by September 23. Please complete the below forms to pre-register and place order for t-shirts and extra butterflies.

EVENT UPDATE: This year we are trying things a little different! Because of the growing attendance each year, we are dividing the event into two parts. If your child’s last name begins with A-L, please consider attending the 10 AM ceremony. If the last name begins with M-Z, please consider attending the 2 PM ceremony. If you have questions, please call 903-939-1597 or email april@childrensparktyler.org.

Please PRE-REGISTER FIRST and THEN PLACE YOUR ORDER for t-shirts and extra butterflies. Everyone must register to have their child’s name included in the ceremony. T-shirts and extra butterflies are optional.
