Balloons Memorial For Deaf Scots Mum
21 June 2016, 08:52
A memorial is being held in Glasgow tomorrow in tribute to a mum of four, found dead at the weekend.
The body of Kirsty Aitchison, who was deaf, was discovered by police divers in the River Clyde, almost a week after she went missing.
Friends are being invited to release pink helium balloons in Kirsty's memory tomorrow evening, near where floral tributes have been left on the Broomielaw.
The 30 year old's death isn't being treated as suspicious.
A Facebook post said: "A gathering for those who have known Kirsty to pay their respects. Due to health and safety reasons with Police Scotland can we ask those who didn't know Kirsty to attend another day / evening to pay their respects."
"We would like to ask you all to bring a PINK helium balloon to let go in memory of Kirsty. I stress NO LANTERNS due to health and safety and fire regulations. "
The post continued: "Balloons to be released at 8pm, PLEASE DO NOT release until we ask you to. A person has been nominated by the family to release balloon first and you will be notified when to release yours. "
