In Ivan's Name

in memory of our son

All Saints Day

On the first Saturday of November the Swedish Church holds a mass for the commemoration of the dead. During the mass the priest reads the names of the persons who died during the year and then a candle is lit for every name. The ceremony was held in the church where Ivan’s funeral was held. The Kalix choir was there and sang throughout the ceremony. At the end we went up to the altar to collect Ivan’s candle. It has been exactly one year now since Ivan has died and it was a nice way to remember our sweet little boy. I think it will be a family tradition.
