Monarch butterfly

Hear Paul perform the song, “Butterfly”

Dear Mr. Dalton,
I am writing for permission to use one of your monarch butterfly photographs on my son’s memorial website. I lost my son in May 2007 and since that time I have been building the website. The content continues to grow, but now I need to begin making it look nicer.

On the day of my son’s funeral service, as I went to get the car, a monarch butterfly flew around me and when I put my hand out the butterfly landed on it. I was 52 years old at the time and I have never had one land on me. I’m not a religious or superstitious man, but I really do believe that the butterfly somehow represented my son Paul and was a message to tell me that he was now ok. After about 30 seconds the butterfly flew away – I watched until it was out of sight.

I’m not sure exactly what the site will look like yet, but likely I’ll use the butterfly in a header on all of the pages. As I searched Google, all of the best butterfly photographs that I saw were yours.

Please let me know if this will be acceptable.

Thank you and warmest regards,

Jon

A Gift From Special Friend

In May 2010, our friends Jan and Karen Wentz gave us this wonderful bowl. Now the Monarch is beautifully displayed in our home every day.
