Remembering Alex and Ian

Today is All Saints Day, the day, also known as All Hallows or Hallowmas. In Mexico it is The Day of the Dead, a day to honour dead children and infants. My two little boys were born and died two years ago today so we remember them and all that they never did. I will tell you about their cake and celebrations soon. Happy birthday Alex and Ian!

  6. The Day of the Dead is also the anniversary of my brother's death. I had a small DoD gathering of those who also have someone close to remember. It felt good for the soul.

    Congrats on the celebration of their briefest of lives. As tough as it is -it's a better option than staying buttoned up I reckon.
