AT PEACE

During¬†the cemetery burial, a Red Admiral butterfly flew around the family and landed on the grave. Red Admiral butterflies are native to Texas, not California where Brent was laid to rest. The butterfly spread out its wings and stayed during Reverend Michael Brillantes’ entire blessings. We feel that the butterfly was Brent’s spirit telling us that he is at peace.
