Every person holds dear to our hearts the memory of those we have lost. For us Vietnamese-Americans, the day of our loved one’s passing is particularly important. Every year on this day, we have a time of family fellowship, so that we can break bread in honor of our loved one. As we share a meal, we smile and share memories. It is a time of togetherness to celebrate the connection that our loved one still fosters amongst those who still set foot on earth.
