A mourning dove (Zenaida macroura), also called rain dove, perching on an Asian ceramic box next to a Delftware vase.

Despite their melancholy call, mourning doves symbolize optimism, spirituality, and fidelity. Beyond their sorrowful song is a message of life, hope, renewal, and peace.

Tempus ad Requiem means ‘Time to Rest’ in Latin. It symbolizes the need for a time and a place to rest, to come to terms with life’s hurdles and replenish our energies. It’s important to take the time to enjoy the beauty of the simple things in life.
