A dove release can be a moving part of any service. As the dove is released and we follow the dove as it ascends, our eyes are flooded with the sun's bright light, the light has the ability to improve the way we feel.
The release of doves is contingent upon the weather.
A butterfly release is a ceremonial freeing of one or more butterflies. The beauty and symbolism of butterflies ascending into the heavens will forever create a comforting memory. The release of butterflies is contingent upon the weather.
A “bouquet” of balloons can be provided in various colors according to your preferences. As the balloons drift up to the heavens they will leave a memory that will last a lifetime. A personal message can be written on the balloons before the release. The balloons are formulated to be safe for the environment.

In difficult times everyone can appreciate the unconditional affection of a canine companion. Dakota, or one of our other certified therapy canines, can provide extra affection in a time of need. When a therapy dog attends a funeral and or visitation, it can help break the ice and make this difficult time more bearable, create a diversion, draw people out and help to entertain children and adults. For many people, petting or hugging a therapy dog has a calming effect. A therapy dog’s presence at a funeral, visitation, and or an arrangement is optional and free of charge. Therapy dogs are also available to be brought to a family member’s home for a visit. Please call us at 715-659-4545 for more information on Therapy dogs.
