A Thought To Ponder - Remembering Those Who Have Passed

As All Hallows Eve nears, let us not forget to remember those who have passed before us.

Death is more universal than life.
Everyone dies, yet not everyone lives
A. Sachs

For death is no more
than a turning of us over from time to eternity
William Penn

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes
like the body
Answers that the flower withers, but the seed remains
Kahil Gibran

When someone you love becomes a memory
the memory becomes a treasure

What a poignant post Janie...I have been gathering my ancestors photos this week to put on my Samhain Altar and it has been so cathartic.

I love cemetaries and tombstones with Angels on them, as I truly love and adore the Angels.

Your pictures are serene and very thoughtful as are the quotes.

Truly an oustanding cemetary is 'Bonaventure'!

Blessings of Peace this Autumn Night!
