Memorials

"They that love beyond the World cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can Spirits ever be divided that love and live in the same Divine Principle. They live in one another still."   - William Penn, 1693

When a Friend dies, that Friend's monthly meeting writes and approves a memorial minute, which emphasizes the deceased's life as a Friend. Memorial minutes provide us with examples of ways to live by our Quaker Faith.

Send your meeting's memorial minutes to Western Friend if you are affiliated with Intermountain Yearly Meeting, North Pacific Yearly Meeting, or Pacific Yearly Meeting. We will publish them here.
