Death is just another part of life, and as another year passes, so many dear to us depart to the other side and begin their journey as our ancestors. El Tecolote remembers so many community members from all walks of life through the year–the people that meant so much to the San Francisco Mission District, changed the city, participated in national struggles, lived immigrant dreams, influenced the globe and more.
