Gothtober Remembrances 2017
Halloween began as the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, marking the moment when the veil between the dead and the living was lifted, and the two worlds could commune. For about 2000 years, October 31st meant bidding adieu to summer, preparing for winter, and remembering the departed.
We give tribute to those we love who have passed on, because Gothtober and Halloween are definitely about pumpkin spice, but also we acknowledge the end of the harvest, and the end of life. Here we honor and remember the departed. You will never be forgotten. Cor Cordium.

50 years spent loving each other. 80 years living beautiful and happy lives. We miss you tremendously already Donna and LeRoy Halbur and hope your spirits soared above the smoke and ash into the heavens with ease. May you be at peace together, forever in love.

She was a super stylish and funny mother of 7. And if she were still with us, she would totally attend Gothtober as a California Raisin.
