April 16, 2004, Newsletter Issue #63: 4 things to do with the remains

Tip of the Week

Memorializing the life starts while the person is alive.
Photos, movies, calls, visits, letters and cards exchanged,
to name a few things. Collect locks of hair and others special items, moments to cherish. Write a detailed obituary - with their help (we are all going to die, let`s not hide from this fact). It will help open channels to find out what more they want for that last good-bye.

Associated Parishes` commentary points out that the liturgical calendar provides several days for remembering loved ones. "For a Christian the most important of these is Nov. 1, All Saints Day, the feast of all the people of God, known and unknown."
Families may also want to observe the following day, commonly called All Souls`, as another appropriate time "to pray for the familial dead."
