If you or a loved one has recently lost someone, White Haven Memorial Park is here for you and your family. We will accommodate your needs so you can pay a proper tribute to your loved one during this stressful and emotional time. We offer a variety of beautiful services and tributes here at White Haven Memorial Park. One of the most touching services we offer is our Butterfly Release.
“The transformation from caterpillar to butterfly is a beautiful, mysterious and natural process. The transition of a loved one from life to death is no less mysterious and natural, and the emergence of a butterfly is a fitting symbol of that transition,” said Andrea Vittum, president of White Haven Memorial Park in Pittsford. The butterfly release is used to symbolize the journey of a loved one’s soul. The symbolism of seeing a caterpillar take on a new life as a butterfly helps us see death as a new beginning, rather than an end. At White Haven, the entire Park is designed to help visitors focus on nature and the endless cycles of life. We maintain several different types of habitat for our wildlife and have many lovely settings that are perfect for a release of a dozen or more butterflies during any of the warmer months.

White Haven Memorial Park also offers a wide variety of burial options that provide comfort for the visitor and take advantage of our natural settings and views. Whether the body has been cremated or placed in a casket or shroud, we have options ranging from green burial in a natural meadow, to niches or crypts in our stately mausoleums, to cremation burials along our nature trail. We even have burial spots overlooking Canandaigua lake.
