“For the Mexican, for the Hispanic, you understand that death is a part of life, and just because someone is not here in their body, doesn’t mean they’re not with you, that they’re not a part of you…” – Diane Janbakhsh, Hispanic Family Foundation

“My altar changes every year…and it’s a lot like my grief which changes with time. Grief needs air to breathe…and the Day of the Dead altar has been an important part of managing my grief.” – Alison Kirk, Alive volunteer and mother of Caroline (9) and Kate (13) who passed under Alive’s care.
