Today I depart from the tales of the peepling quilts and reflect on Dia De Los Muertos, Day of the Dead also known, among other titles, as the Feast of All Saints and All Souls. Queenie first learned of this holiday while still a theatre gypsy living for a short time in the land of enchantment, New Mexico. The more Queenie learned about it the more I fell in love with this beautiful holiday. In a nut shell it is the celebration and commemoration of those who have passed on before us through the veil to eternity.
Today I remember Honey Man’s Mother, Olga who passed through the veil in the early morning of Thursday, October 27, 2011, after a ten year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She loved cooking, gardening, golf and most especially her family.
A crown of collected treasure sits atop… Children and their children the jewels of this mother’s crown
Inside awaits Our Lady who embraces those passed and lovingly holds those who remain
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Honey Man and his family as they lay to rest a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
Always, Queenie Believe
