Day of the Dead has nothing to do with Halloween. It is a Mexican Holiday that honors family.. all family, those living and those that are no longer with us.
Families make altars with candles, flowers and pictures of those that have died. They eat the meals they loved and visit the cemeteries. They decorate the graves and sometimes even bring food and music to share with them. Most importantly, they share stories of their lives. They laugh and they cry. They miss and they know that they will all be together again.
The Lopez family honored this tradition by painting their faces and wearing crowns of flowers, some adorned with skulls. It was a moment to feel close to those they had lost.
Emily loves her kids. Daisy is the oldest daughter. She is the sweetest, most helpful and is an artist. Jasmine is a senior. She is a free spirit, most responsible and hardworking. Sabrina loves to run, go hiking, any outdoor activity. She is always up for an adventure. Robert is a a sweetheart, a gamer. He is strong and fighting for his life.
