Our Beloved Dead

In keeping with the practices of faiths and cultures worldwide, we will observe a remembrance of our beloved dead. Please bring pictures and/or mementos of your beloved who have passed – family, friends, animals. We will build an altar, hear a story and re-connect with those who have gone before.
