A white dove release for a funeral or memorial service is symbolic of eternal peace and can comfort those who have lost a loved one.
Just as there is a time for dance and for laughter, there is also a time to mourn and remember. At the end of a graveside service, there are few things more powerful than the releasing of white doves. White doves create a beautiful moment in time, providing family and friends with a special way to express final goodbyes.
The doves are a vivid symbol of hope, offering healing and closure. A family member or close friend can release the first dove, symbolizing the one they have come to honor. Then, the rest of the doves are released and unite with the first as they all gracefully fly overhead. Shortly after, the doves fly off into the horizon and return home.
