Memento mori is Latin for "remember you will die", and encompasses the centuries old theory and practice of reflection on mortality.
Memento Mori Stories are reflections on our own and our loved ones’ mortality, and how we are coping with grief and loss. From the depths of fear, pain and denial can come deep gifts of connection, appreciation, and peace. These poignant and personal stories reflect on such questions as: How do we remember those we have loved? What are the things we keep, the phrases we use, the foods we prepare, the places that are special?
Memento Mori Stories – remembering that we will die, and that life is to be cherished, noticed, and lived fully.

It’s been just really emotional to think that that is no longer in my life.
