About 1988, Ted Klein, of Lake Travis, Texas, attended a Mexican funeral at the famous old San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas. Ted reported that the priest offered the following story:

"We have a tradition in Mexico that each person dies three times. First, there is the moment in which the body stops functioning. Second, there is the time that the remains are consigned to the grave. Third, there is that moment, sometime in the future, in which the person's name is spoken for the last time. Then the person is really gone."

Those who pursue genealogy are preventing that third death among their families by preserving memories from the past.
