Family should always be united, they should always care for each other no matter what, love each other no matter what.
At first sisters & brother were singing, I saw they were having so much fan, I wanted to sing as well.

Anyone can celebrate the Day of the dead, it is not just Mexican celebration, it just shows the celebration of love for our ancestors.
