My Dad's Memorial Celebration

It's time to have a memorial for my father again.  It's been eight years since he has passed away.  I can still see the tender in his eyes when he looked at me when I come to visit.  All of us siblings and grand children gathered at his grave  after church on Sunday.

We say prayers, talk to dad regarding what happened to us for this past year, who's engaged, get married, have babies, graduation etc... just like when he was still with us;  afterward, we all went to my brother's home and have lunch, we also watch video of dad so that we can remind the younger members of the family of who he was and never forget him.

This is a tradition that we always celebrate to remember our ancesters.  I cherish this tradition because
it reminds me of who I am and where I came from, and also to help my children always know who
they are, too.
