Boy and brother
visit the cemetery
burn candles and remember
their Mamma.

We arrived at the cemetery on All Saints Day (Nov 1) and Jerry’s brother Ryan had already been there many hours — cleaning the gave of his mother and keeping the candles alight. Jerry placed fresh red flowers in a white basket next to the burning candles. Afterwards, Ryan took us to his new house along a path through the sugarcane.
