That is a really tough question...i think for each person it is different. For me, I write my feelings down and reflect on the moments with them that makes me the person I am today. Also, I find it really helpful to share my feelings with other people who understand what I am going through. I hope this helps.

Peace and Love

It may sound silly but I talk to those I'm missing. I write down how I'm feeling....Crying helps me too.

When my daughter misses her grandfather she colors him a picture and we tie it to a ballon and watch it sail into the sky.

Now I write letters to my family. I lost all of my birth family and I now am living with a new family and mom new mom gave me the idea. I have a special "mailbox" in which I post my letters to my family in. It really helps.

Sometimes I get things out that remind me of them. I talk to them, and cry, and talk some more. Sometimes, there is nothing that can help.

Or, I come here, knowing at least someone will understand.

Hi: I'm 64 and at that age chances are many friends and family have already passed away. In a few days it will be the anniversary of my son's death. At one of the funerals, there was a grief counselor who suggested writing a letter to the loved one, address an envelope with their name, and Heavan as the address, and either mail it without a stamp or put it in an empty metal container and burn it. I prefer to burn my letter outside in a metal container. In my mind it is the same as e-mail and gets to the loved one immediately.

i have a myspace page and the day my stepbrother was murdered a friend from his school created a page in honor of him so when i want to feel close to him i go to his myspace page and write to him, it makes me feel a little better, and on his birthday every year my mom, stepdad, stepsister, my husband, my two sons and i get helium balloons and each of us write personal notes on each balloon to my stepbrother and let them go and we sit and watch them til they dissapear in the sky.
