It was a night to remember loved ones Wednesday night at the Erie Home for Children and Adults.
It was the annual memorial service butterfly release.
The event is held in memory of all the people lost during the year at the EHCA.
Loved ones gathered to remember the family and friends they've lost this year, then released butterflies to remember the good times they shared with those who have died.
"When you lose someone, it never goes away," said Paul Carpenedo, Executive Director of the Erie Home for Children and Adults. "It leaves a hole in your life and to keep those memories fresh is a very positive thing and we like to make it a very positive event."
This is the ninth year for that butterfly release.
