All Souls {Remembrance}

At home, our All Saints and All Souls remembrance~ 
 where we place our saints and dearly departed friends and family
during this time of special prayers...

Joseph and Hannah at work today cleaning the grave markers in the children's cemetery.

Rebecca, Ava and Ben

Lucy ran to Ava and said,
"Ava, I'm so glad to see you here today!"

Maddie and Hannah work together.

Harvey's happy with his sponge.

Ben's snack!

Maria and Alice team up.

Ellen decorates Anna's grave.

Angela (with the girls) and Elisa (with the boys) supervise and teach.

Joseph, Peter and I rinse the grave marker they scrubbed clean.

Christina at work.
Today a group of us joined Anna's (+) mom, Melissa, brother Sam and sister, Alice, at the children's area of our local cemetery.   
We worked together to tidy up the grave markers and beautify them with fresh flowers.
There were scrub brushes and buckets and spray bottles and sponges... 
all put to use in the clean up effort.
Our gathering on this All Souls Day also provided us an opportunity to pray 
together at Anna's grave, which was beautifully decorated.  
A little over a month ago Anna left us... but her eternally beauty remains.

Dear Anna~
Pray for us!

Thank you Bridget, for capturing this special time with our children and in memory of little Anna. May the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
