Across cultures and religious traditions, the end of October is a time to remember our loved ones who have died. Gone from the physical manifestation of life, our hearts remain connected to the lessons about love and living we have learned, and in that way, each one of us lives on. We set aside this time to reflect on death and dying, taking with us what it means to live well.
