When I read this Christmas card from one of my mom’s dear friends, I had a good cry. I love hearing and knowing that others are remembering and honouring her as well, in their own ways.

“…I think of Anne Marie, and of my teaching days. She was such a good teacher, principal and friend. At Samhain, October 31, I attended an event at the Unitarians where we called the four directions, and cast a circle. Then we could light a candle for our departed dear ones. So I lit one for Anne Marie, and said her name out loud to remember her in this world.”

Isn’t that just the most beautiful thing you have ever read?
