The Dove - Angel Stories

By: Michael De La Cerda

It was a late spring day when were all gathered around my grandmother's bed, praying and softly singing, as she was slowly dying from throat cancer. There was also a nurse in attendance who was a part of the hospice team. The final moment came along with the many tears. As she was being taken to the coroner's van, the family, children and adults alike, lined up on both sides of the walkway leading from her house to the street and sang her a final farewell. We then gathered in the backyard of her home where we shared the many stories of her life. There were around 11 of us sitting together in a large circle, apart from other people in the yard, during this time. Our circle was comprised of mostly the older grandchildren. As we sat talking, laughing and remembering, we became silent as a white dove suddenly landed directly in the middle of our circle. We continued to sit quietly as the dove peacefully walked around the inside of the circle of chairs and after gracing us with his company inside the circle, found its way to other areas of the yard, where other children and adults were sitting nearby. It continued to walk around, seemingly at peace and unafraid of any person in the yard. After about eight minutes or so, it gently flew away. We were blessed that day with a messenger of peace. God's reassurance to us that my grandmother was at peace and suffering no longer. And the manifestation of God's grace upon us was shown to us in a most familiar form.
