All Soul's Day

Today is All Soul's Day

At mass yesterday they had little envelopes where you could write the names of loved ones who have passed on. I didn't have a pen, so I borrowed one from the lady sitting next to me and wrote down five names. (Both my grandfathers, Redd's mother, my uncle, and George Harrison.) I knew there was another name I wanted to list, but I couldn't think of it. I knew it was really important, but I couldn't think who. After I'd returned the pen and mass started, I realized I forgot Monkey's mom. So I prayed that her name be included along with the five I submitted.

There are so many dear people that could have also been added. I thought to myself I ought to start a list of names. Of course, that's impractical since it would be incredibly long. Every friend and family member I've known and lost. Every celebrity who's passed on after making an impact on my life. Every family member I never got the chance to know. Every friend and family member of my friends and family members. And everyone else. That may not even cover it.



All you holy men and women pray for us.

I think it's safe to say that God knows the people who made an impact on your life and they are well remembered even if they didn't make it into the envelop.
