Letters to the Editor

On behalf of the Edna White Community Garden, thank you for sharing photos of your loved ones.

With initial support from The Beverly Review, the inaugural Day of the Dead launch in Morgan Park’s memorial garden was an enlightening success.

This week’s timely arrival of “Indian summer” seemingly signaled a bond with those angels we honored under brilliant sunlight on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 1. As planned, every posted photo was a “Celebration of Life.”

There’s still space on the ofrenda. We encourage you to visit the garden this week while the weather is warm and dry. You will find “community staplers” positioned in the two vegetable beds by the altar.

Please feel free to post your photograph of a loved one, feel the connection and maybe see one of Indian summer’s “spirits dancing in the sunlight.”

Late that afternoon as we tidied up, there was wall space on the shed next to a photo of boxer Muhammed Ali, fittingly affixed near a butterfly and over a bee.
