In my family it is custom for those who are very close to the deceased to leave a memento in the casket at the end of the funeral. For most of my young life Sissy came to for Halloween. It is because of her that I have such a love of Halloween and costuming and scary things and the paranormal. So to honor the bond between us and in honor of our mutual love of Halloween this is what I brought to leave in the casket. Candycorn makes pretty much every American think of Halloween and I couldn’t think of a symbol of my love for Sissy that would be more fitting. Today I say “Goodbye Sissy.” But she will forever be in my heart.
