“Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away and be at rest” Psalms 55:6
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult times that all of us will experience someday. A memorial service is a time when we reflect, heal and say good-bye.The release of doves at an outdoor memorial or graveside service is a peaceful and uplifting moment that will be remembered by family and friends.
A flock of doves (usually 7) is released from a decorated basket and circles overhead several times symbolizing angels in wait. A single dove representing the departed spirit is released and escorted by the angels to heaven. It is a heartfelt way to honor your loved one and conclude the graveside service.
