My nephew's was killed over 2 yrs ago, Jan 1st, 2009. His birthday is coming up, May 11. Days like that are so hard to deal with, trying to think of something positive i can do that day to make it feel somehow better...people tell me to celebrate his life, rather than dwell on his death, but how do i do that?
I lost my son a year ago and I continue to find ways to celebrate him. A few weeks after he passed we had a celebration of life barbecue at the summer camp that he attended and where he worked as a counselor for several years. We planted a tree and I read a poem. We sang all the traditional camp songs and we all got up and told stories about the good times. I also made a photo slideshow to a song that reminded me of him and showed it on his birthday. Next week will be the first anniversary of his passing and I am making a placque to place under the tree. I am also putting together a book of memories, song lyrics and poems collected from everyone that knew him. His facebook page is still up and we all drop him a line from time to time. I am also thinking of releasing balloons with messages attached. Hope this helps.

How do I begin to thank you for the life you have given me. A life that included 4 loving children, 4 beautiful grandchildren and memories that will last forever.We had more then the romantic love we had when we first met almost 40 years ago. That fades with time. Through the ups and downs, fights and reconciliations, laughter and tears we had something more. We had true love, commitment, trust, and most importantly we had friendship. Since 1975 we have been together to celebrate every…See More
