Heartfelt sentiments from some of our wonderful clients.
Although you have many testimonials on your web page, I'd like to add one more.
I wanted to again thank you and tell you how special the release of the doves was on Saturday for Mother's celebration of life. The family and caregivers thought it was such an incredible tribute and activity and thanked me for arranging it. You offer a beautiful contribution to celebrations and you clearly have a passion for what you do. Friends who joined us later had never heard of doing this and loved the idea.
Take care and thank you for your loving contribution!

I was at the funeral ceremony yesterday for Jean Taylor and I was blown away with your White Dove presentation. It is a great way to say good bye to someone and it is so much more friendly to the invironment. I am a retired airline pilot and I do not know how many times I have experienced a balloon at 10000 feet while I was doing 350 knots. It really wakes you up. This will be on my wish list and I will pass it on to all my friends.
Thank you so very much for your services on Oct. 1st. You did such a nice job at Bob's memorial. I know my daughter Kaylee will always rember your doves.
Thank you so much for the beautiful dove release at our 50 year reunion. You gave a very heartfelt and special appreciation for our Viet Nam vets and a lovely message to our classmates. Your dove release was the highlight of the evening. Great to get to meet you and your doves.

The dove release was beautiful. Holding the Spirit Dove in my hands and kissing it's head before releasing it was very emotional for me. As I let it go, I said a final farewell to my father and truly felt closure. The service you provide is a beautiful experience.
I've heard many comments, all positive. Most had never seen such a beautiful send off. I have no regrets Michael. The memories of that day and your doves made it so very special.
Please send me some brochures and business cards so I can give them to others who would appreciate learning of your beautiful services.
Thank you so much for celebrating Mom's graduation with your doves.
Mom was a spirit filled believer in Christ so your spirit dove seemed very appropriate.
Your birds were AMAZING! Thank you so much for being available and so professional, and for rolling with the punches handed out by mother nature! Even though we didn't plan with you to do the ceremonial release, I am so thankful you were able to select two doves that could handle it! It was one of my favorite parts of the whole day.
Once again, I can't thank you enough for making our day so special!

Dear Mr. McAndrews,
I am writing this to thank you for the lovely service you provided to my family in December. To jog your memory, you did a white dove release service for my father, at his graveside memorial on December 21, Everyone in the family is still talking about how beautiful and moving, and just downright cool this ceremony was.
I believe the symbolism of releasing dad's spirit with the spirit dove really helped my mother on that most difficult of days.
The rest of the family is still talking about the doves, and everyone loved it. From my entire family, thank you again for the beautiful ceremony. We will always remember you and your lovely doves with a warm heart.
The dove release was one of those moments that took my breath away!
I've had so many people tell me how beautiful it was. My dad's favorite song was On The Wings of a Snow White Dove.
I know he was there helping guide them home.
With our gratitude,
The Petoski, Rarey and Simmons Families

Thank you very much for the fine display and flight of your doves for our anniversary. It was a very beautiful speech and a wonderful sight of all eighty doves. Everyone enjoyed them.
We appreciated your talk and explanation of the meanings of the different reasons for the release of the two, then the twelve, then the remaining sixty-six.
Thank you for the releasing of your doves.
