White Dove Occasions for Release
Jackie and Monte Summers
Doves naturally make strong familial ties and mate for life. They are highly recognized for their devotion in caring for their young and one another. As a young couple start out their new life together, the example shown by a pair of white doves serves to reinforce the magnitude of the vows they take on this special occasion. The release of a pair of doves is not only a lovely visual experience, it also is a beautiful and sentimental symbol of commitment. As the doves spiral gracefully towards the sky, all eyes are riveted as they join and together and begin their journey home.
The white dove has for centuries symbolized purity, faithfulness, hope, peace and spirituality. This beautiful bird was developed from the native grey Rock Dove and immediately became revered across the known world as a symbol of godliness and purity. What better way to imbue any special occasion with the awe-inspiring attributes of these exquisite doves as they so majestically take to the air in a flutter of flawless white wings than with a live dove release.
Doves for Memorials, Funerals, and Life Celebrations
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.
We have a selection of poems that may be read at a memorial and will be framed as a keepsake, along with a flight feather of a Spirit Dove.
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.
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'.
