All Souls' Day Observance

Did you go to the cemetery to visit your loved ones? Here in the US, they do not have this type of observance or commemoration for the dead. Today is just an ordinary day. My husband actually plan to visit his dad at the cemetery today but, when we were there at the Ocean Springs, he forgot. I did too. Anyway, after work tomorrow, I will remind him.

I was browsing photos of the cemetery in the Philippines and I thought, how lucky they were (the dead) that their relatives, family and friends offered, lighted candles and say their prayers for them. Somewhere and someone out there were forgotten souls. How sad and lonely can it be! Some families spent a night or two at the cemetery and brought food to feast on. All Soul's Day in the Philippines is a holiday for family gatherings and be with their dead loved ones. We do remember our departed family and friends today.

How about you? Do you say a prayer for your departed loved ones?
