Funeral Releases

There is no better way to say goodbye to a loved one than to release doves in his or her honor.

White dove releases are a beautiful way of sending a special message of peace and love. Dove releases for funeral services or memorials are symbolic of the spiritual flight home and create a soothing moment of silence. White doves for funerals are symbolic of eternal peace and  white dove releases can comfort those who have lost a loved one.

After the reading of a poem or verse such as Psalm 55:
  "And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. "

A flock of white doves can be released to circle above and await the spirit dove which will ascend to join the others for the final flight home. 

The dove release typically takes place at the cemetery at the end of the service. A flock of doves representing all of our friends and family who have passed before us is released. The doves circle above waiting for your loved one. A moment later, a single white dove is released by a family member. The lone dove rises to meet the others and they soon begin their final flight home. Additional doves may be released as Angels to accompany the birds home.

The release of the doves is an awe-inspiring sight. You can almost see the spirit of your loved one flying into the heavens. This is a wonderful way to pay lasting tribute to the dearly departed.

A small additional flock of birds representing angels is released. A single white dove representing your family member is then released to be escorted home by the others.

A Single Spirit Dove preceded by a companion Escort Dove, usually termed as a Guardian or Archangel Escort or a Basket of any number of Angel Escorts. Many people prefer to allow the Spirit Dove join a Trinity (three) of Doves representing the Holy Trinity.  As the Single Dove is released a beautiful moment takes place as all of the Doves released make their departure to join in flight, usually you can watch as they assemble to flock and fly together with the Eternal Spirit Dove.  All of the Doves will then leave the release site together, all flying side by side in a beautiful flock.
