Balloons for Heaven


Buy News photos |

Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of the slaying of Toys R Us manager Larry Wells. Friends and family gathered at Firemans Park in Blasdell to pay tribute to his memory with a balloon-release ceremony. The idea came from Wells' older daughter, who writes notes to her father, ties them to a balloon and sends them to heaven. Local author Matt Chandler also released "Balloons for Heaven" at the event.
