An anniversary of a loved one’s death is always tough. It can open old wounds and rekindle memories that we haven’t thought about for a long time.
The pain never fully goes and is often at its rawest and most vivid on days like anniversaries. But whilst for some it’s a day that brings back unwanted grief, for others it’s a chance to celebrate someone’s passing.
And if appropriate then you may want to offer your condolences on the anniversary of a loved one’s death to their family or friends. Reaching out with a message or card can show they’re in your thoughts and you’re there for them.
“What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget”
Your life was full of loving deeds
Forever thoughtful for our special needs,
The memories of you we will never forget,
You always struggled for the best.
Now in God’s arm you are taking rest.
We just love you and miss you.
It’s going to be a tough day. It’s been a year; it feels like just a day or two. The grief may have subdued a little, but especially on the “day of” you will probably feel raw. Plan some time to mourn, contemplate, pray, journal, walk, or just bury yourself in the couch.
