Funeral home in Opelika hosts Mother's Day remembrance service and balloon release

OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - For some, Mother's Day can be difficult as many people have mothers who are no longer here.

On Saturday, an East Alabama funeral home held a special service to honor mothers who have passed away.

Harris Funeral Home in Opelika held its 2nd annual Mother's Day remembrance service and balloon release.  After a brief service, families were given balloons and asked to write the name of the mother they are honoring on them.  The balloons were then released into the air.
