Your words mean even more to me knowing that you have recently gone through this ordeal yourself. Thank you. And my condolensces to you, as well.
This Halloween (or Samhain, the Celtic new year) I'm thinking of participating in a Spiral Dance, which honors the dead and born of the previous year. I didn't really do any kind of personal ceremony for my dad and I think this will be a good way to complete things. I'll let you know if I do it.
