We talk about them as if they were alive

In Jewish Culture when a person passes away we say they live in their descendants. My Bubbie & Zadie past away very close together when I was 9. I’m 22 now. We often forget to light their yahrzeit candles. It has been so long since I visited their graves but we talk about them as if they were alive. I think the capitalist system doesn’t give us time to mourn properly and how this project changes that.
