All Saints Day

Today was the day we remember the saints of the faith- both recognized and unknown. A day when all things close, schools and businesses.

This day we visited the cemetery in preparation for tomorrow, All Souls Day, by placing flowers next to ancestors and friends that have passed. Walking through the pathways, it is so moving to read the messages on the tombs. Besides the beauty and artistry of their tombs, there is something else that always mesmerized me about the cemeteries here. Adjacent to each name is a photo. It is so touching and personal, that you feel like you’re being introduced to that person.

I’ve been hearing stories about people with Mamma and this history is something that I do not want to loose. These people are not forgotten.
