All Souls' Day

We celebrated All Souls' Day yesterday, Nov 2nd. For the first time, the priest visited the new graveyard at Lampaki. The blessing started at 1pm then we proceeded to the old graveyard near Sacred Heart Church Inobong.

Visiting the graveyards means bringing some flowers and candles. So I made a trip to florists in Donggongon last Saturday. And as expected, flowers were sold out! Fortunately, one florist ordered more flowers but it can only be delivered in the evening. So I waited! I had to, if not then I won't get any flowers.

The delivery came at 4pm. Luckily, I booked earlier because, when I came back to the florist, there were many people queuing up. I got myself three bundles but the sad news was, I have to arrange the flowers by myself as the florist was so busy - they can't help! Oh my!

With the help of my hubby, here are the outcome:

This one is for Tony, my hubby's older brother who died at a very young age

For my hubby's grandma (his mom's side)

For my grandma (mom's side)

For my mother in law

For my father in law

and for my brother in law, Vivian

May Their Souls Rest in Peace, Amen.
