My nephew Justin, brought 3 Dove's to my son Ryan's scattering day, of his ashes, at the beach, and about 50 family members & friends shared this experience with me, the funeral director walked out into the ocean, up to his waste in the middle of April,(On the eastcoast, in New Hampshire)very cold water, we all watched him let Ryan's ashes go, the last thing we did, was to let the Dove's go home to their destiny, but first before we let them go, if we wanted, we were allowed to hold them and pat them, I decided to pick one up, and hold it, and I talked to the Dove, I looked in the Dove's beautiful brown eyes, just as though they were Ryan's brown eyes, the Dove was so peaceful in my hands, the Dove was tilting his head, looking at me with Ryan's beautiful brown eyes, as though he wanted to communicate with me, Now, it was time to throw them up into the air, so we threw them up, and 2 of them flew up in the sky, except my Dove, my Dove jumped on the ground, and stood their looking at me, I said to the Dove, "Ryan" I know that is you, and you don't want to go home, you want to stay with me, I said look everyone, this Dove is Ryan, and he won't go, he wants to stay with us, Ryan the Dove, wants to hang out with us, I said thats my boy, I knew you wanted to stay with your Mom & your Friends, everybody laughed, we looked up into the sky, and the 2 Dove's were circling around, way up in the sky waiting for Ryan the Dove to fly home with them, I said to, Ryan the Dove, you can't stay, you need to go home with the other 2 Dove's, they are waiting for you, GO RYAN GO, FLY RYAN FLY, And off he flew, in 2 seconds he was with the other 2 Dove's, All 3 Dove's headed south, as fast as they could fly, to their destiny.... Love, Kelly (Ryan's Mom)
