Hippolyta's first funeral

Farewell

Farewell

This is Becky, owner of Love-a-Dove and my flock of White Wedding Doves.


Recently, I released my doves at the funeral of a dear elderly lady that I have known all my life, and after the birds were released they flew around before heading "home".

What was interesting is that one of the doves, Hippolyta, that I had released in memory of the lady, flew around and then landed on the wall of the cemetery and watched the family members as they got in their cars and left.

It was really special and I have never seen one of my birds do that before.

That is unusual and such a beautiful thing to happen - who would think that the little dove would sit on the wall and wait for the family to leave?
