Dia de los muertos – Day of the dead

The Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated widely in the Mexican culture of Mexico and North America.  The purpose it to remember and celebrate the lives of deceased family and friends.  On this day I will celebrate the lives of these people: My Dad, Gene Kenley: Grandmother, Dessie Redwine; Cousin, Jan Furrh; best g/friend Connie; best guy friend; Charles.  There are many more, but those specifically who have left this life most recently.  A friend at work told me yesterday that in the Mexican culture there are 3 deaths: when the spirit leaves the body, when the body is burried and the final is when no one remembers you.

May the souls of these dearly departed, rest in peace.
