Families deserve the right of complete freedom of expression at time of death. People are not cast from the same spiritual or emotional mold. Therefore, they should be free to express themselves in the manner which best conveys their emotions. Any expression which is the result of dictate, ceases to be an act of the heart.

1. The Legend of Butterflies:
According to legend, the Great Spirit created butterflies, as a gift to all mankind.
If you want a special wish to come true, simply capture a butterfly and whisper your heart's desire to it. Since butterflies make no sound, your secret is safe in their keeping. Plus, being so colorful, the butterflies will easily be seen and your heart's prayers quickly answered.

2. What is the significance of releasing doves at a funeral?

Symbols of peace and bearers of love, white memorial doves carry comfort to those who need comfort, and lift happy memories above a sad day as they begin their journey home. Sincere smiles arise from children and adults as downy white doves fly up toward the sky and spirits are uplifted. White funeral doves deliver stoic tranquility to encircle a funeral service with honor and dignity in a fitting tribute. Each white dove release is made meaningful as we tailor the release for your cherished loved one.

When its time to let go

Memorials are where the significance of releasing a dove can be most poignant, as it signifies releasing the spirit of your loved one. This can be arranged at a memorial service among friends and family, or you may wish to do this in private, at any date that is most meaningful to you.

"Oh that I had the wings of a dove, for I would fly away and be at rest."

Psalms 55:6

3. Memorial Balloon Releases
As well as happy events, we also provide balloons for the funeral of a loved one. Many people say that it helps them feel they are releasing the person and that helps with the grieving process.
A funeral should be as unique and special as the person it represents. More and more families are realizing the importance of creating a personalized tribute that celebrates an individual's life, loves and special moments. There are many meaningful ways to remember someone we love.

Keep in mind that a funeral or memorial service can take place almost anywhere at any time. From a traditional setting to a favorite indoor or outdoor location, that best reflects your family's beliefs and the life or interests of your loved one.

Balloon Releases - Balloon releases are mostly held at the end of a graveside service on the cemetery grounds. This is a meaningful way to bring closure to a graveside service. Family and friends each release a balloon into the air quite often with a prayer. Releasing balloons can symbolize many things such as sending prayers and messages to Heaven, the soul taking flight to Heaven, or a sign of letting go of grief.

4. Significance of Flowers
Flowers are sent to funerals for several reasons. First, flowers are a means of expression. It is often difficult for those mourning a death to put feelings into words. Flowers are a visual expression of love, sympathy, and respect. They are means a lending support and sharing the burden of grief.

In addition to sending flowers to the funeral service, there is a growing trend to send flowers to the home of the bereaved after the service. In addition, some people send flowers to the church in memory of the deceased.

Flowers create a background of warmth and beauty which adds to the dignity and consolation of the funeral service. Those who have attended services where there were no flowers have expressed the feelings that something was missing... that the funeral was depressing.
