  1. Don, I cannot begin to express the outpouring of emotion I experienced at the Dove Release at the culmination of my brother Jim Stevens’ Memorial Service on October 14, 2014 at Hidenwood Presbyterian Church.
    This was my first experience with a Ceremonial Dove Release and I must say that I was overwhelmed. What an incredibly heart-felt and spiritual way to say your final goodbyes to a loved one. I very much appreciated you taking the time to share with me your experiences and motivation which moved you to establish this offering. Your comment about the change in demeanor in children at a graveside service with the release of the doves is a wonderful testimonial to the simplicity, beauty and deep meaning of such an event.
    We are most fortunate to have you providing this “ministry” here on the peninsula.
    God Bless you and your family,
    Tom Stevens

  3. Don, incorporating the dove release into our memorial service was a very comforting way for our entire family, especially the grandchildren, to say goodbye and begin the healing process after losing someone they loved so much. Releasing the beautiful white dove representing the Spirit of our loved one, followed by three other doves representing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, added peace to the moment. The message delivered through this ceremony was so special and meaningful to all those who attended. I would highly recommend incorporating this ceremony into any memorial service.
    Fondly,

  4. If you want something very touching at a special occasion whether it be remembering a loved one at a funeral or memorial service or celebrating cancer survivors at a walk, Ceremonial Dove Release of Tidewater will make the event even more memorable. As owner of Weymouth Funeral Home and Chairperson of The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides 5k walk, I have had the opportunity to use the dove release many times. It is always a meaningful addition to any event.

    • Thank you Veronica for your Funeral Home’s support. It is nice when a Funeral Home cares enough about their clients to recommend a White Dove Release. Many people have never seen a Dove Release and do not realize how meaningful and uplifting it is to the family.
      We are also glad that we can support your Cancer Walk. It is a very worthwhile cause.

  5. Ceremonial Doves of Tidewater is a wonderful organization. They have supported Edmarc Hospice for Children on numerous occasions with the last being our Day of Remembrance honoring the children that have died in our program. Edmarc serves children with life limiting illnesses and reduces the disabling effects of pediatric illness, loss, and bereavement on families. Don Kane is delightful to work with and has supported our initiatives. Ceremonial Doves of Tidewater has also had a presence at our bereavement camp (Camp M.A.G.I.C.) for our closing memorial services. The families seem to enjoy the presentation and the symbolic meaning of the dove release. We are grateful for his support to the children and families of Edmarc Hospice for Children.

  6. The ceremony lead by Mr. Kane and his beautiful doves provided the perfect touch to closing celebration of the life of my mother, Vashti White. The tribute was a peaceful reminder of a life lived for Christ. It is wonderful to have a memory like this to comfort me during this time of loss. Mr. Kane included the grandchildren in the ceremony; a moment they will never forget. His patience and calming spirit also made those final moments of the day unforgettable.
    We thank you for your ministry and professionalism. May God continue to bless you!
    Sincerely,
    Geshla Windley

  7. As we did not have a graveside service after my Mom’s funeral, we found the Dove Release provided a special touch to the end of the Memorial Service. It provided a wonderful way for my brothers, sister & I to say goodbye to Mom. You made every effort to make this our unique experience, and succeeded. We very much appreciated it.

  10. Thank you Don for the wonderful releasing of Doves on April 28th 2017 for my 1st nephews funeral. This was a very tough time for our family being that he was so young in age and taken from us.
    In addition to the Lords promise of receiving my nephews soul, the beautiful doves granted the visual closure we needed. It was truly an amazing memory we can keep close to our hearts until we see him again.
    Thank you for your professionalism and thorough explanation to me and the family.

  11. Don, thank you for providing a beautiful closure to the memorial of my mother Beatrice Dennis on 07/15/17. Releasing the Doves added a special touch. Thank you for your services.

  13. I just wanted to give a big Thank You to Don Kane and his Ceremonial Doves. On August 28, 2017, I was able to do a really nice and tasteful memorial tribute to my Mom, Barbara Ann Steele Meiring, who passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 4th of this year. The dove release was beautiful and breathtaking! It was a beautiful experience that I shall keep in my heart forever!!! I truly felt the presence of God and my Mom with me on that day. This is a most difficult loss for me and such a wonderful memory like this will keep me comforted in my loss for a long time. I shall highly recommend Mr. Kane’s Ceremonial Doves to others. God Bless You, Mr. Kane!

  14. Don, Thank you so much for your service! Your professionalism was amazing and the Dove Release really captured the moment we were looking for. This service provided our family and friends the closure needed to move forward. We were so amazed at how a simple act could provide so much peace. Our memorial service was complete with this added touch. I would highly recommend the Trinity release for a memorial service. Thank you.
