The beauty (and sometimes the bane) about this AMAZING Community is the mass/volume of information. 💞
That said, Is it possible to get an update on 'shells for Denise'?...are shells still being accepted?...if so, where (the Pilgrim's Office? At The Tree?). Also, is there something set up in place for us to honor ALL of those Camino brother's and Sister's who have given up Soul whilst on Camino?

Natefaith or Rebekah will correct me if I am wrong, but, in the past, they have collected commemorative shells, etc. destined for this memorial at the Pilgrim House, Rua Nova #19. Somehow, the shells have found their way out to the memorial tree just west of Astorga.

Hope this helps.

'they' being, the Pilgrims Office?
No, it was Pilgrim House, and all the shells they collected are now at Denise's tree outside of Astorga.
Somehow, the shells have found their way out to the memorial tree just west of Astorga.
'Somehow' was @Peter Fransiscus , who very kindly took them there from Santiago.
At this point, anyone walking the Frances can leave their shells there directly.
