In memory of...

In Sherman Heights (a neighborhood near downtown), lots of families put up altars for Dia de los Muertos. The community center had a special event where several altars were set up by individuals remembering loved ones that have passed away. There was also a "community" altar where anyone could bring a photo or memento, light a candle, and spend time reflecting and remembering those that have passed. The altar above was in honor of loved ones from the Ramirez family. The sign was also written in Spanish above the English words. The altars at the community center are still up through today.
