today our kinders

learned  a beautiful lesson

about a lovely tradition

honoring those who we have loved and lost

and now continue to remember

on this very special holiday each year

and onward.

“the core belief of the Day of the Dead is so poetic and simple: as long as we remember those who have passed away, as long as we tell their stories, sing their songs, tell their jokes, cook their favorite meals, then they are with us, around us, and in our hearts.

-jorge r. guiterrez

  1. That’s the nicest description of the Day of the Dead I’ve ever read, made all the more poignant by the loss of little Hazen whose life was cut far too short. It is a terrible grief for all involved to come to terms with. His little friends would have found it especially difficult. What a lovely way of honouring those who have gone before.
