Our local Dia de los Muertos Festival is wonderful and I’ve gone several times and even taken pictures of loved ones to leave at the public altar.
This year was a really special one though.
Our amazing, funny, one of a kind friend, Ryan, just went to the other side ten days ago and so we all went to celebrate him and be together.
We all brought different things and made a beautiful altar for him:
And we all got to spend time just being together:
He didn’t want a traditional memorial service and I think this is the kind of thing he would just love.
It was so him.
And it was so all of us.
It’s still a see you later, friend. I’m sure of it. 💙💙💙
