Invitation to Balloon Release

This is the press release that we sent out today. All of my lovely bloggy friends are invited as well. Consider this a personal invite. If you can make it to Cedar Rapids we'd love to have you. I understand that not all of you can make it. I mean, some of you live a few miles away. We'll let those of you who fit that segment of readers off the hook. If you can't make it please think of us on Sunday at 1:00 Central. Pray that we aren't losing our minds. Or more to the point that everybody else isn't losing their minds. Y'all are witness to the fact that I've already lost mine.

For Immediate Release:

Balloon Release and Event to Remember Still Missing Cedar Rapids Child

The family of missing Cedar Rapids child, Erin Pospisil, invites the community to join them in a balloon release remembering the 9th anniversary of Erin’s disappearance.

June 3, 2010 marks nine years since then 15 year old, Erin Pospisil was last seen in front of the home of a friend in the 1500 block of Second Avenue SE. Family and friends will mark the anniversary with a balloon release Sunday, May 30, 2010 at 1:00 PM at the First Church of the Open Bible at 1911 E Avenue NW Cedar Rapids, IA.

“This is the ninth anniversary of our daughter’s disappearance. Recent events in Cedar Rapids give us hope that Erin can also be found. No one can understand the feelings a parent goes through knowing your child is missing unless they have gone through it themselves.” States Jim Pospisil, father of Erin Pospisil. “Nine years later, the not knowing isn’t any easier. It leaves you numb at times but the sadness is still there. All of the time.”

A recently released age progression from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children gives the Pospisil family and the Cedar Rapids Police Department a new tool to assist in the investigation into Erin’s disappearance.

“As we have reiterated for nine years,” says Erin’s step-mother, Carolyn Pospisil, “Somebody out there knows what happened to Erin that night. It is our hope that the reminder of her disappearance and the new age progression will help someone to remember something that will give us that all important lead that will help us to bring Erin home.”

All in the community are welcome to attend the balloon release remembrance 1:00 PM Sunday at First Church of the Open Bible at 1911 E Avenue NW Cedar Rapids, IA.
