At funeral and memorial services, a Dove Release is a peaceful and healing tribute. It is a beautiful way of expressing a final goodbye, of letting go. The feeling of peace helps to bring closure to family and friends and is a unique, heartfelt way to honor your loved one. A white bird release helps ease the grief.
It is our policy to donate a release for any active serviceman or woman that died while serving our country. Any police or fireman that is killed in the line of duty will also receive a dove release. We appreciate all you do for us.
Our birds need at least 1 hour before sunset to return home safely from a release within 20 miles and 2 hours for further distances. Please click here for sunset times.
I thank God every day, for letting us have him in our lives, albeit such a short time. The memorial service was at South Lido, his favorite place to fish and where the picture was taken of the last fish he caught there. It has taken me four months to get the strength to put this on my website. The tears continue to fall, as if it was only yesterday. My beautiful white birds did for myself and my family what I believe that they have done all along for my clients.
Since this was originally put on my website, several years have passed and this still brings me solace. Clicking on his photo will bring you to his website.
