Today is a sad day for my wife and I [View all]

Today is the 49th day since my mother in law passed.

This is traditionally the day when Buddhists gather and pray to say farewell.

My wife and I would appreciate your good wishes today.

The Buddhist prayer is "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" if you would like to say goodbye in the faith mom practiced, chant that phrase 3 times.

Of course you don't have to do that if your faith precludes it.

Thank you
