Ceremonial White Doves
of Modesto, California
White DovesFor Your 
Memorial and Funeral Service
A release of a single white dove at the funeral of a loved one can bring comfort like little else can.  Watching the symbol of your loved one's spirit fly off and up into heaven is very moving.  Many have said it gave them a great deal of comfort and closure..
A typical dove release at a funeral involves a single white dove placed in a beautiful container and on a stand.  At the end of the service, the family steps forward, gathering around the single dove.  All family members place a hand on the lid, and as a group lift the lid and liberate the pure white dove to fly up and into heaven.
Immediately afterwards, a flock of doves are released, symbolizing God's angels.  The angel doves fly up and surround the single spirit dove, then all the birds fly home together.

Comments from our White Dove Release Clients
Funeral Packages

Our prices are very reasonable. They vary depending on the distance that the birds must fly back to their lofts in Modesto. For example, our packages maintain price within 15 miles of Modesto. For areas just outside of 15 miles a fee of $10 will be added. A fee of $20 is added for: Stockton, Lodi, Tracy, Oakdale, and Merced area. Releases farther away in areas such as Sonora, Livermore, Antioch, or Concord will have an additional $75 charge due to the stress that long car trips cause on our doves. We will help you contact other dove services in your area if your budget does not allow for our distance charges.
