We have regretfully made the difficult decision to cancel the Spring Butterfly Releases. 

We hope to welcome everyone back next year!

We regretfully have to ask everyone to walk in their own bubbles at a time that suits them best.

We hope to share this event again next year

Who We Are
If you are visiting this website, chances are someone important/special to you has died or you are preparing for a death. We are a supportive community who understands grief. We have all been there. We hope you will find that these pages are a comfort and a place to remember those we love, as well as a resource for information about BFO Kingston Region’s programs and services. We believe that when bereaved families come together to support one another, they can influence the growth of a healing and caring community.

                         December 2020 Update:   

This is a difficult time for all of us, particularly those grieving during the isolation of COVID-19.

Due to the provincial shutdown, we are working remotely at this time. Please email or call 613-634-1230 for support. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
