Dear Loved Ones,

Dear Loved Ones, 
We remember you. 
We honor the life you lived. 
We miss you.
You are in our hearts and prayers now and forever.

Day of the Dead, Mexico
Thoughts to ponder with your family and friends:

~ Who has died that you know, 
   and what is something special you remember about them?

~ How do you honor those who have died?

~ It is said that the vail between the living and the dead is very thin between Oct 31st and Nov 1st. It's a time when those who have died; their spirits come back to celebrate with us!
That is one reason why BIG alters are set up for them. 
What will you bring/would you bring to an alter for them in their honor?
