 We want to thank everyone who took the time to leave a message here. I am overwhelmed at how many balloons were found. Our Becky  touched so many lives when she was here on Earth and she keeps on doing it every day. 

I wish I could write everyone personally but we are not allowed to put our email on here, so if you would like to contact me so I can, you can find me on Facebook under Joan Flanagan Pina.

Thank you again everyone..you have all made my day & touched my heart!

 On August 13th 2012, while fishing in New York on Lake Ontario, I found a deflated balloon floating in the water with a tag on it to put a message up on this website.  I am very sorry for your loss.

I went on a fishing trip this past weekend in Lake Ontario and came across a note tied on a ribbon floating in the water. My friends said "Oh! Don't worry about that paper, watch your finishing line!" For some reason, I thought it was important. As English is my second language I didn't quite understand what the note meant. I took a picture and showed my daughter and she said it was something special to a family. My heart sank. July 5 happens to be my birthday. I believe things happen for a reason and her spirit must've been around. Thought you and your family would want to know that she is still around. My thoughts and prayers our with your family. God bless!

I go to school at SUNY Oswego and was at the lake for the sunset. I saw two balloons and went to pick them up, when the red one was caught underneath the rock. I pulled it up and found the message, and came here as soon as I got back.

Very nice website. Well done. Stay strong. Love in every instance.

My sister Joan will be back from vacation next week and respond to all those kind enough to leave a message here.  Thank you all.  The balloons were launched from Webster NY (a suburb of Rochester)

We were at Selkirk Shores State Park yesterday walking along the beach, I was taking photo and found your green balloon with the message attached. It was very hard to read but we sat there for a while and pieced it back together. Although we could only read a small part of it I wrote down Becky's name and part of this web address. Today I found the site so I figured I would leave a quick note. I found it interesting that we should find the balloon because we just sent balloons to heaven last month. My niece Madison became an angel on 1/30/12. She was 4 and a 1/2. She had a brain tumor which she had bravely fought her whole live. She beat it once but it returned. I miss her everyday and love her with all my heart but I know we shall met again.

I found one of the ballons in Rebecca's memory at our family's camp in South West Oswego, NY on 8/13/2012. Loss is never an easy thing to deal with, especially for someone so young. I will keep her and you all in my heart and in my prayers.

Joan,  my daughter is married  to Ed Keller and I am so proud of them both. I just wanted you to know how much the Memorial Hankie meant to Drema. As you know she lost her dad in a terrible accident. I was also at Kathy's and Ted when they released balloons, I think it was a couple of years ago. I was really touched as the brightly colored balloons floated up to sky and slowly out  of sight. Hope to get back up soon and just wanted to let you know that you are not along. God Bless your family always, Nancy

My sister Joan (Becky's mom) has asked me to write a message to all of you who found our balloons.   She is visiting family in Massachusetts and does not have access to a computer.  She will be returning home to Arkansas next week.  The balloons were launched from Webster NY, a suburb of Rochester.  We recently lost our dad (Becky's grandfather) and launched them from the cemetery for both Becky and Dad.  I'm so thankful you all took the time to write a message here.  Joan asked me to put her email here in case any of you wanted to contact her   *email addresses cannot be posted on vm*   Again, thank you for taking the time to write a message here.

I am so sorry for your loss.. What brought me to this website was that a friend of mine posted on facebook that she found one of your balloons. So I  had to come and see. Now I am leaving with a heavy heart for your loss... I hope throughout the years things have gotten better for you and hope there are better to come. She was a ery beautiful girl. And you should be very proud..

One more thing to add. There were a ton of butterflies around me at the beach today.

Especially for Beckys Mom-

I am 33 years old and I have been really struggling lately...emotionally. I have been missing a friend who is dear to my heart ..he is leaving for Afghanistan in September and he just left in JUly to go back home from a visit here. The visit was so very nice but left me really missing him . Needless to say today I woke up and figured I would go to the water because its so relaxing to me and there I can think and just be alone. Well I was walking along the beach at Selkirk Shores which is in Pulaski NY and came across the green balloon. I walked up to it and noticed it had a message attached and the plastic around it was sitting between two little rocks. I picked it up and pieced the words together and all I could get was ur daughters name and the date of her passing so I googled just that and came to this memorial site! I have to say thank u so much and have to let you know that your daughter is truly an angel and she helped me today! All I wanted today was to pray by the water and have a sign to what I needed to do to get out of this emotional rut. Well when I started to read the part you wrote and I read what your daughters message was on her phone I got just what I asked for !!!!!!! I wish you the very best in life and again thank u so much to you for the balloon and for your daughter as she was the angel who was sent to me today! <3

We were sailing on Lake Ontario, near Pultneyville, NY  on 8/12 and a balloon dropped from the sky.  It had your memorial message.  We send our condolences to your family but glad that we found her message.  Where were the balloons launched?
