A ceremony for Allan Pim

Catherine’s Uncle Allan died in November 2011, so Catherine suggested we conduct a little ceremony. She lit some candles, and propped a photo of him against a cactus: he used to have a lot of them in his home. We took it in turns to share a memory or 2 about him in appreciation…
