Dove Releases

dove release at graveside

“Oh that I had wings like a dove, I would fly away and be at rest.” –Psalm 55.6

Many times when someone dies we are left with a sense of emptiness and desire to honor their spirit. One way to pay homage is a dove release. A dove release presents a quiet moment of reflection and comfort. It gives closure and a sense of enlightenment that the spirit has lifted and become free.

Dove releases typically take place at the closing of a graveside service. If another kind of service is chosen, a dove release can be performed outdoors after the service at the funeral home, church, chapel, or any other place the funeral or memorial is held.

We recommend Patrick Vanderpool, owner of Highland Lofts, White Dove Releases. Patrick is caring and highly sensitive to the needs of each family as he prepares for a service using his white doves. He presents them in beautifully handcrafted display cages that are visually stunning at the service.

His prices depend on the number of doves released. They usually circle the ceremonial area several times to get their navigational bearings. Then they fly straight back to where they were born and raised in Snohomish County. They know fresh food and water are waiting for them.
