“Don’t weep at my grave, For I am not there,
I’ve a date with a butterfly, To dance in the air.
I’ll be singing in the sunshine, Wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind,While I’m waiting for thee.”

It is a sad moment to loose someone dear to our own souls. But nevertheless, it is the beginning of a new journey for you, as well as for our dearly departed beloved. We all wish in our own way that we had more time to say the things we needed to say, to pass on this reassurance of our understanding and love, thinking that it’s too late to do so. The spirit of our dearly departed has not yet gone, but is waiting for its body to be put rest and be in peace. Once this has been done, the spirit then departs and enjoys the beginnings of a new journey. Butterflies flying free also represent the “setting free of the spirit” and releasing butterflies is a reflective, yet uplifting, experience. Our Company specialises in offering our personal support and professional assistance when arranging butterflies for a funeral service. We happily cater for any number of butterflies and in any combination of release packaging as personally desired. In appreciation of the fact there is limited notice involved with the planning of a funeral service we continually breed butterflies to fulfil orders on short notice. Although fulfilling such orders is always subject to the availability of butterflies ~ we recommend that you contact us with as much notice as possible to confirm availability.



“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world:
but then it flies again. And though we wish it could, have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it”

“As you release this butterfly in honour of me, know that I’m with you and will always be.
Hold a hand, say a prayer, close your eyes and see me there.
Although you may feel a bit torn apart, please know that I’ll be forever in your heart.

Now fly away butterfly as high as you can go, I’m right there with you more than you know.”

~ Jill Haley


“Fly, fly little wing, Fly beyond imagining, The softest cloud, the whitest dove, Upon the wind of heaven’s love
Past the planets and the stars, Leave this lonely world of ours, Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again. Fly, fly precious one, Your endless journey has begun, Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this, Cross over to the other shore, There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet, Until we meet
Fly, fly do not fear, Don’t waste a breath, don’t shed a tear, Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don’t wait for me, Above the universe you’ll climb, On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set, But I won’t forget.
Fly, fly little wing, Fly where only angels sing, Fly away, the time is right, Go now, find the light”

“I’d like the memory of me, To be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow, Of smiles when life is done., I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, To dry before the sun
Of happy memories, That I leave when life is done”

A Place Where Children Are:

“What kind of place, would heaven be with all its streets of gold, if all the souls,
that dwell up there like yours and mine, were old? How strange
would heaven’s music sound when harps begin to ring, if children
were not gathered ’round to help the angels sing. The children
that God sends to us are only just a loan, He knows we need
their sunshine to make the house a home. We need the inspiration
of a baby’s blessed smile. He doesn’t say they’ve come to stay,
just lends them for a while. Sometimes it takes them years to do
the work for which they come. Sometimes in just a month or two
our Father calls them home. I like to think some souls up there
bear not one sinful scar. I love to think of heaven as a place
where children are.”

What we call the end of the world, the master calls the beginning of a glorious journey.
