All Soul’s Day is a Roman Catholic day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away. This comes from the ancient Pagan Festival of the Dead, which celebrated the Pagan belief that the souls of the dead would return for a meal with the family. Candles in the window would guide the souls back home, and another place was set at the table. Children would come through the village, asking for food to be offered symbolically to the dead, then donated to feed the hungry.
Today and tomorrow my special memories are as always for my hero, my Dad. Also my Grandmother, my cousin Jan, my best g/friend Connie, my dear friend Charles. Also for all of my AA friends who took their lives because they could no longer live with their disease.
May they rest in peace.
