13. My mom's funeral was on All Saints Day, which is also
Day of the Dead in the Mexican tradition. (Dio de los Muertos)

They really do it up too. Favorite foods of the loved ones, photos, little altars with keepsakes. A very loving and neat tradition. There is a whole subclass of amazing folk are related to Day of the Dead.

So today I honored my mom by reading a book she would have loved
By doing something extra for someone who needed it
By enjoying my cats (she did really love cats)
and by thinking of neat stuff about her.
