Nov. 2 is All Souls Day. We remember those who have gone before.
Hebrews 12:1–2 (NIV): Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
A note I made in a digital Bible had a list of those family members and spiritual heroes who had gone before. I am immensely blessed. I miss them. I rejoice with them. I ask them to keep cheering me on.
