CFCA marks Day of the Dead, or ‘Dia de los Muertos’

In Latin American countries such as Mexico and El Salvador, it is customary to honor beloved family members who have passed away by celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

In many places, people will spend all day today in the cemetery on what is considered a celebration of life, not death. The graves are decorated, and it is a time for family and friends to gather and honor the lives of their loved ones.

Here at our headquarters in Kansas City we have our own Day of the Dead display. Veronica Vidal, who works in our Sponsor Services department, prepared a place in our community dining room to feature friends and loved ones in the CFCA community who have gone before us.

This year we honor the memory of two of our co-founders, Nadine Pearce and Bud Hentzen:

Remembering Nadine Pearce and Bud Hentzen, CFCA co-founders

Bud Hentzen died Nov. 30, 2011, and his sister, Nadine Pearce, died two months later on Jan. 30, 2012. We miss them deeply, but we also celebrate their legacy and everything they have helped CFCA to be during the last 30 years.
