Dove Release at the Gravesite At funerals and memorials, the dove release memorial is the final part of the service. The release is often accompanied by a heart-felt poem that is read by a close family member or clergy official. A dove symbolizes the Holy Spirit, love, peace, hope, and the should. A white dove release offers a soothing touch in a time of sadness and sorrow.
The sound of the bagpipe is probably most associated with funeral services and the song “Amazing Grace.” The bagpipe adds a solemn and dignified touch to the funeral ceremony and can help communicate a sense of closure. A nice touch at the beginning of the graveside funeral service is to have the bagpiper start at a distance away and slowly march toward the gathering. At the conclusion of the ceremony it is quite popular to have the bagpiper playing while slowly marching off into the distance.
