The releasing of white doves at funerals is quickly becoming a popular way of adding that special touch to your loved ones funeral service.
In addition to flowers, a White Dove release for a funeral is one of the most loving and inspirational gifts to give to a loved one. The releasing of a white dove helps to begin the grieving process by opening the doors to "letting go" and is sure to live on in the memories of all attending the service. The trained white birds will soar into the sky, usually circling any number of times in a group before returning to their home lofts at distances up to several hundred miles.
After the crematorium service or at the end of the graveside service, family members release the doves from beautifully decorated baskets. The flock ascends into the sky and circles before making their journey home.
