White Dove Release at Funerals
For centuries, the White Dove has been a symbol of the Holy Spirit, love, peace, hope and the soul. In n the context of a funeral, they illustrate the desire that we have for our loved one to rest peacefully. Additionally, doves are also symbols of the soul. The flight of the white dove parallels that of the soul and its journey to its eternal home of peace and purity.
Our doves are appropriate not only for funerals but also for memorials. They serve as a reminder that our loved ones have been freed from the bondage of this world, and are now seeing new horizons. They inspire in the beholders a sense of the sublime, which will enrich their memories as nostalgia and reminiscence surge to the forefront of their minds.
White doves have symbolized the Holy Spirit, love, peace, hope, and the soul. A White Dove Release offers a soothing touch in a time of sadness and sorrow. It leaves those present with a feeling of hope for their recently departed loved one.
