Feliz Dia de los Muertos from the team at Morales Funeral Home. This Mexican tradition involves family and friends getting together to celebrate, pray for and remember those who have died, helping them in their spiritual journey. During this holiday death is seen as a natural part of the human cycle, not as something that brings sadness, but an opportunity to reconnect with those who have moved on to a new cycle.
