All Saints' Day, also known as All Hallows, Day of All the Saints,Solemnity of All Saints, or Feast of All Saints is a solemnity celebrated on 1 November by the Roman Catholic Church of Latin rite and various Protestant denominations, and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in Eastern Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. The liturgical celebration begins at Vespers on the evening of 31 October and ends at the close of 1 November. It is thus the day before All Souls' Day.
All Souls' Day, in Christianity, is a day commemorating the faithful departed, particularly but not exclusively one's relatives. In Western Christianity the annual celebration is now held on 2 November and is associated with All Saints' Day (1 November) and its vigil, Halloween (31 October). In the liturgical books of the western Catholic Church (the Latin Church) it is called the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed, and is celebrated annually on 2 November, even if this date falls on a Sunday; on this day Catholics pray for the dead. In Anglicanism it is called Commemoration of All Faithful Departed and is an optional celebration; Anglicans view All Souls' Day as an extension of the observance of All Saints' Day and it serves to "remember those who have died", in connection with the theological doctrines of the resurrection of the body and the Communion of Saints.
BUCHAN (David John ): You left this earth in the whisper of the night, leaving us with a heavy hole in our hearts and minds. We hope you are now happy and free.

Babykin, Gayle Marie
Apalachin: Gayle Marie Babykin found peace Wed, Jan 7, from a lengthy fight against cancer. Thank you to all the nurses, aides, and volunteers who assisted her. Gayle was born in Woodlawn Heights, NY and grew up in Durham, NC with parents Anatole and Edna before they settled in Apalachin, where the family calls home. She graduated from Vestal High School and after college worked as a medical technician. Fascinated with biotechnology, Gayle adapted her technical skills to marketing management with industry leaders HP and Genentech in Silicon Valley. She leaves behind her mother, Edna; brother, Gary and his wife Michelle; and recently lost her brother, Greg to brain cancer, his wife, Melissa and their daughters, Ashley, Adrian, Avery and Anastacia. Gayle supported various cat rescue organizations, and her beloved companion felines, "Mr. Tabby" and "Eric the Red" are in need of new homes. Remembrances can be directed to Grace Lutheran Church in Vestal.

Dear Jenny, I just found out that a really good guy, and involved care2 member, Doug Alley just died of a massive heart attack....
Hopefully a friend of his will post it, but I wanted to give you a heads up just in case..
I wanted to tell you a sad, very sad thing :
Raja G. from India, Mysore has died. He did not recover from his heart surgery. He died on june 1.
Raja will be a Host here still, He will be still with us ...
He was a real gentleman of peace and at the same time a fighter for human rights and justice.
I miss You my Dearest Raja.
Where can I find You?
Are You high in the clouds and You are happy and free there?
Maybe one day
You'll sit on my shoulder
like a butterfly
and whisper in my ear : It's me.?
I'm still with You, You are still with me.
This is a good group, you have created and it is good that those who have not realised their friend has passed away, it is good that they are remembered here and to inform others of peoples passing.
Here is our Care2 member, who I did not know, but I got this message and here is his profile.

Greenseas I see many dear hearts loved and remembered ... i adored Agnes Corbett who was my first friend when I joined Care2 in 2006. She inspires me every day and always will ... and dear Chrissy Newman who helped me to laugh at myself and gave so much of herself even though she struggled and was in pain ... now at Peace forevermore.
Their Light shone upon us and continues to shine within us ... friendship is the gift that keeps on giving ... and though I miss each one I know they are cheering me on just as they did in life. For having known them ... I am eternally Blessed, as we all are.
Kathryn, thanks for the invite..
Your heart warms everyone you touch... thank you for all you do..
To all our friends who've left us..R.I.P. You are never forgotten..
Although it is with great sadness to see these names - so many of them were my friends - Arthur - Agnes - Patt - Trevor - Dariana - Haviland - Estrellita - James. - They have been and will be missed. How magnificent to know we were so honored to have known them - they touched and changed our lives.
I wonder how many more we have forgotten? Poe -
I want to post this note to tell you that based on an email I recvd. I have decided that the only contribution I can make to the passing of so many of our friends is to donate 100% of the proceeds to the Cancer Foundation for all the Quilted Mug Mats I make and sell on etsy.com - I am going to go today and buy material and will start making them and hoping to post them by next weekend -
when you go into etsy.com - select shops then type in KATSWHIMSICALQUILTS. it will bring you to the shop - Thanking all of you inadvance. I pray our friends keep fighting. Please feel free to post names - thoughts memories - eme if you need or want anything. If it is within my powers to assist I most certainly will. My email address is also email@example.com.
Have a very blessed weekend.
Rest in Peace my friend
James Carpenter also passed away earlier this year.
My grandma and dear friend.
Arthur was a lovely man - I also remember Dungeon Lady - please tell your other friends that this group is here so we do not forget our care2 friends

Your very welcome and Echo could you plse post the candle link and perhaps a nice candle -- I'll go candle hunting.
Trevor was my friend, he was loved by many, and I dearly miss him. Trevor is free. It is hard for those left behind. If Trevor was here, he would say, 'Whats up? Be happy.'
Kat, of course you are more than welcome to use the candle link, it belongs to every one.
For those who are left behind, my heart felt feeling for your loss. I have lit a candle.
Thank you Kat for everything.

Kat I agree with my friend Abo. This is a good place to remember our On-line friends with whom we became close to. I miss Cynthia of Anton, Texas. When my friend Boontariki informed me, I quickly went to her Page before someone shuts it down and made a new dear friend Clare who sent me a friend request the same time I was sending her one. I guess Cynthia wanted us to get together. RIP, my friend. Yes, can you guys figure out how to put Candles?
I will add more info later ...
Bossy B aka .....
Rebecca Mayas aka "Dungeon Lady"
All are missed by many in both real life as well as this virtual world.
Good you thought of and it is a wonderful work, It is a memorial and friends needs to remember thier friends from time to time specially those who were a figure in your relationship and friendship.
This thread make me remember my parents and wife and oldest daughter whom I never forget.
Echo your very welcome - I liked Trevor -- was he ill long? I did light a candle for him.
Speaking of candles could we post one for our grp billboard?
Lone when did he pass?
Echo he was a sweet man ...
