Respect After Death

Respect After Death

Respecting Life After DeathI am with family in Hawaii celebrating the life of my uncle who past away a few days ago. My mother had two brothers, my uncle Fernando was MIA in the Korean Conflict. Her other brother, my uncle Alex was a popular musician in the Big Island of Hawaii.

This morning my cousin Charlotte prepared his flowers. Aroma of the huge floral sprays and arrangements circulated the workroom in her garage. As I watched cousin Charlotte said, "these flowers are not for the dead, they are for the living". Respect After Death It's a way to show respect to the family for the loss of a loved one. As we respect life, respect death.

Respect for the family after death, do it frequently.

 

 

 

Respecting Life After Death

My uncle Alex was graced with a beautiful voice, one who serenaded thousands of people in Hawaii with his Puerto Rican music. He will be missed but will not be forgotten.

Leolinda, what a wonderful tribute to your uncle.  I like your cousin Charlotte saying the flowers are for the living - they remind of us of the life of the love one we now miss, but remind us of the beauty of the life which once was.  I'm glad you're able to be with your family at this time.  Aloha.

Regardless of whether the changes you want to make are big or little, you have to start somewhere, and these tips are a great place to begin. jamaican girls Be sure to keep a clean makeup brush and some face powder in your desk drawer at work for a quick touch up before going out with work mates. Putting just a little bit of shimmery make-up on your cheeks will also subtly enhance the appearance of your cheekbones. Beauty doesn't have to be expensive. Even though you may want to buy that expensive eye shadow or face cream, it's possible to get quality products at reasonable prices. jamaican girls There is a way to remove dark circles from underneath your eyes. Massage around your eyes, starting from the outside and working around the eye with facial moisturizer. This will energize the areas around your eyes and encourage drainage of the lymphatic passages as well. You may be surprised to know that holding an ice cube in your mouth will help reduce puffiness in your face. Finish up by splashing some cold water on your face, and you'll soon look fresh as a daisy! If you want the vibrant looking skin you see on magazine covers, make sure you are always carrying a moisturizing lotion. This is especially important during the winter months as the cold and dry weather can cause skin to crack and peel. Regularly applying moisturizer will keep your skin soft and looking great. Curl your eyelashes before putting on your mascara. Your curled eyelashes will not only look longer than they are, but the entire jamaicanjamaicanarea of your eyes can be visually lifted and look brighter. When using an eyelash curler, start at the bottom of the lashes and squeeze for a single second. Then, squeeze it again when moving it toward your lashes' end. This technique will give your lashes a soft curve instead of a sharp angle. jamaican women Now that you've read this helpful article, you may be inclined to try a few of the tips mentioned here, or maybe even all of them.
