I visited your website for the first time tonight, trying to more specifically identify a butterfly I have had in my mind for over 15 years (black with blue on its back end).
It came to visit one day while I was working on a sensor light over my patio. It was a bit annoying, as I was teetering on a ladder ten feet off the ground and had never experienced such a tenacious butterfly, insisting on lighting on my arm over and over. A short time later, we received the call that my father had died just about the same time that butterfly appeared.
I felt a connection of these two events at the time, but felt strange telling the story to anyone. When I saw a similar story on your website, it brought tears to my eyes. I don’t understand it, but I have felt for a long time that my father came to tell me goodbye.
