Also, we offer a selection of ceremonial poems from which you choose to be read prior to the dove release. A beautiful white dove release is a meaningful way to say goodbye and will leave a special memory in the hearts of all who attend. We also offer the choice of a beautiful single white dove display that can be set up near the guestbook or the casket during calling hours.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!


“Life sometimes deals too much too fast. I lost both parents and a dear aunt in a mere 7 months. My only other sibling died in 2004 at the tender age of 59. I wanted to honor them all in a unique way. Andrea was super to work with and suggested various ways to accomplish my goal. We released 4 gorgeous doves graveside at my Mother’s funeral. The part that will forever remain in my heart is when the dove symbolizing my Mom went from my hands to the ground. Then my “Dad’s” dove was released, and it,too,went to the ground,but then the two flew skyward together!! The closure this event gave me can never be measured! …you all are terrific!!”
