Dove Releases for Funerals, Memorials, & Life Celebrations

releasing doves at cemetary

stained glass drawing with doveOh that I had wings of a dove!
For then I would fly away and be at rest.
Psalm 55:6


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,

love leaves a memory no one can steal. Words alone may never relieve the heartache of losing a loved one.

July memorial release

The release of white doves

at a memorial service is a spiritual, uplifting and symbolic event... never to be forgotten.

dove release at cemetaryTo watch a single white bird

flying into the sky easily allows us to let our loved one go with the spirit of that dove. If desired, a release of three doves representing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost might follow. Often a flock of doves are then released, after the single dove, to help guide your loved one's way.

~ At My Grave ~

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.
*by Mary E. Frye (1932)
