"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take , but by the number of moments that take our breath away"
When a loved one passes we are left with a sense of emptiness and uncertainty of what to do next. How do you move on? How do you let go? A graveside service with a dove release presents a quiet moment of reflection and comfort. this symbolic gesture gives some closure and a sense of enlightenment that the spirit has lifted and become free.
At the time of your choosing, a single white dove is released by a relative or friend. You may choose a hand release, or if you prefer, a small basket. The symbolic release of your loved ones spirit foreshadows the emotional release that is shared by all.
Three doves are released representing the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. As they circle overhead, a relative or close friend releases a single white dove, symbolizing the loved ones spirit. The single dove can be released by hand or from a small, decorated basket. As the trinity of doves ascends on high, they await the loved one to join them. The trio of doves then escorts the spirit dove on its final journey home.
At the end of the graveside service, a flock of “Sky Angels” are released from beautifully decorated baskets. Then the flock ascends on high and circles in the sky above, waiting for the spirit of the loved one to join them. Moments later, a single white dove, representing your loved ones spirit, joins them. Then the flock of “Sky Angels” escorts the departed on their final journey home. Although, only symbolic, the ceremony helps to bring closure and comfort to those who are left behind on the ground
