Parents honor lost children with first annual remembrance walk

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - It was perfect weather for the first annual "Walk To Remember Our Children" event at Spring Grove Cemetery.

The event was held Sunday morning by Cincinnati's West Chapter of The Compassionate Friends.

The Compassionate Friends is a support group for parents who have lost their children, as well as grandparents and siblings of children who have died.

Before the walk started, members of the group wrote their lost one's name on a balloon. They then carried the balloons throughout the walk and released them into the sky at the end.
