This is a week for anniversaries and remembrances.
My paternal grandmother, Flora Slade Carter, died in the wee hours of All Saints Day 2000.
Poppie Blocher, my maternal grandmother, died on November 3, 1967. I was six years old.
On this All Saints Day, I remember my own faithful departed, and rejoice in their life and witness.
My sister Karen was born on November 6, 19–. (I’ll let her say what specific year.) And Poppie was buried on her birthday.
