Families walk to the graves of their loved ones at Queen of Heaven Cemetery. In a touching final celebration of All Soul’s Day on Saturday night, hundreds of congregants came to the hilltop in Salinas to attend mass, offer their prayers, and as dusk fell, participate in a candlelight procession. Friends and family members sat by the graves of loved ones, many of which were decorated with traditional Day of the Dead marigolds, photographs of the departed, and things that were their favorites in life.
