Earlier this month marked the one year anniversary of my mom's passing.
There was a hatsubon service at her church for all members who had passed away since the hatsubon service that was held last year. This meant that even members who had died just a month ago were included in this service.
I wrote about hatsubon in Japan here.
Over the weekend, we also held a small service for family.
The food was catered and I cleaned the house as best as I could to get it ready for guests.
I hope everyone had enough to eat and it was nice to see both sides of our family get together.
I must say that there is still a big void without her here.
Missing you Mom.
