Releasing white doves is a beautiful way of expressing your love and final goodbye. Pure white “doves” symbolize peace, love and more, helping to bring closure for family and friends: a unique way to honor your loved one and a memory to last in everyone’s heart. We understand your sadness and loss. We offer to work with family members or, if preferred directly with your chosen funeral director, and then we make all our arrangements in co-ordination with your funeral director, keeping intrusion to a minimum at this difficult time. “Andre Dove Release” can be either at the cemetery, crematory, your home or other relevant location.

A Spirit dove representing your loved one, followed by three more doves representing the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The number 4 derives its meaning from creation. On the fourth day of what is called 'creation week' God completed the material universe. On this day he brought into existence our sun, the moon, and all the stars (Genesis 1:14 - 19). Their purpose was not only to give off light, but also to divide the day from the night on earth, thus becoming a basic demarcation of time. They were also made to be a type of signal that would mark off the days, years and seasons.
Interestingly, the Hebrew word for 'seasons' in Genesis 1:14 is moed (Strong's Concordance
#H4150), which literally translated is "appointed times" (divine appointments) in reference to God's festivals. This is the earliest known allusion to what would later be called the Holy (or Feast) days (periods) of worship, which are seven in number.
(Exodus 20:9 - 11). The Sabbath day is tied directly to the creation week. God himself made the period between Friday sunset and Saturday sunset extra special when he rested on it after bringing everything into existence the previous six days (Genesis 2:1 - 3, Exodus 20:11).
The seven beautiful white doves, representing spiritual perfection. The number seven in the bible is known to represent seven angels in white flying through the sky.
Seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual). It derives much of its meaning from being tied directly to God's creation of all things. According to Jewish tradition, the creation of Adam occurred on October 7th, 3761 B.C. (or the first day of Tishri, which is the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar). The word 'created' is used 7 times describing God's creative work (Genesis 1:1, 21, 27 three times; 2:3; 2:4). There are 7 days in a week and God's Sabbath is on the 7th day.
The Bible, as a whole, was originally divided into 7 major divisions. They are 1) the Law; 2) the Prophets; 3) the Writings, or Psalms; 4) the Gospels and Acts; 5) the General Epistles; 6) the Epistles of Paul; and 7) the book of Revelation. The total number of originally inspired books was forty-nine, or 7 x 7, demonstrating the absolute perfection of the Word of God.
The 12th Doves can be released to represent 12 blessings (Hope, Joy, Wonder, Praise, Peace, Benevolence, Comfort, Faith, Perseverance, Strength, Love and Grace). The number 12 is also an important number in the Bible.
