Funerals, Memorials, and Life Celebrations

"Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
For then I would fly away and be at rest."
Psalm 55:6

At funeral and memorial services, a Dove Release is a deeply peaceful and healing tribute. Doves are a beautiful way of expressing a final goodbye, of letting go. A feeling of peace follows which helps to bring closure for family and friends.

No matter your beliefs, a White Dove Release gives a feeling of a peaceful departure by your loved one. A Dove Release is often given in lieu of flowers, or in addition to.

To Those Whom I Love
and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go.blurred wings
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many good years.

I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.

So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away for life goes on.
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear,
All my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a 'Welcome Home'.
