Great memories, Kate. I also was the last kid in a old-school Catholic family (my siblings actually had to dress up like saints on Halloween) so your thoughts ring familiar. I don't practice traditional Christian beliefs anymore and I also dedicate November 1 as a day to remember all my ancestors and friends who have died along with a few of the famous people who have died over the last 12 months. I think it's really important to remember all the people who lived and died before me and what their struggles mean.
