a day of remembrance

today we had an amazingly beautiful ward activity/ service project at the karrakatta cemetery, a day of remembrance, honouring those who have gone before us. organised by one of the councillors in the relief society in our ward. it was such a beautiful morning, we met at the cemetery in the latter-day saints section and had a brief service with a speaker and two short musical items, followed by us giving service. we cleaned and weeded the graves, placed small floral tributes on them and the youth from our ward photographed each headstone to upload them to the billion graves website, assisting with the family history of future generations.

it was such a lovely, touching morning and i was so glad to be a part of it... here's hoping it becomes an annual event. ♥
