I'm so sorry about your Granpa. Start some kind of tradition to honor his memory.

For my son we release baloons or light a candle, or cook his favorite foods or all of these things. It helps a little.

Hi Veronica sorry for your loss. One year anniversarys' can be really hard to cope with. All the pain and grief comes back again. It's ok to grieve and cry if you need to. Maybe you can as Sue said do something to remember him in a positive light as well. With my mom's passing/ and anniversary date, I cry and grief but try to remember her too with the laughs we hared, the thing we enjoyed. Sometimes I go somewhere she may have liked. Depends on how I feel. I really try not to put any expectations on myself but lighting a candle or some of Sue's suggestions are nice. Thinking of you. Rachele

I'm glad you remembered the good times of your grandfather, Veronica. I remember lots of good things with my mom. Missing is the hard part. Bittersweet are the anniversaries for me, as I near the 4th year of my mom's death. Good times there were, plenty that make me smile, laugh and yet cry almost all at the same time. Support does mean alot and I too did plenty or writing and keeping busy and distracted. Hugs to you, Rachele
