Thank you so much for bringing your beautiful white dove to my brother's funeral. It felt so right doing that for him. I can't tell you how much you giving me the lovely white feather meant to me. My brother's friends all thought it was a wonderful thing to do and many of them were surprised, they had never seen anything like that before. So from my heart I thank you so very much.


A big thank you for participating in our son's funeral reception. Everyone who attended, and as you know there were many, have said what a lovely idea it was to release the doves as a symbolic gesture of our Son's life. Your reading before hand and the explanation of what was about to happen and what it meant was very touching. On the release of the birds there was not a dry eye to be seen. An event that will live on long after other memories have faded. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for helping us to release the five Doves today at my father's funeral - it really made his final farewell very special - I fell in love with my Dove by the way he/she was so sweet. It was love at first sight for me with the Dove I held, I didn’t want to let it go!! I never realised what beautiful, spiritual creatures they are - they definitely have healing properties. Once you placed the Dove into my hand I stopped crying immediately and felt instantly calmed...


Many thanks for all your help, your poem, and the doves were just fantastic, and your team really made it a lovely end to a sad day. Good luck with the business and take care.
