Celebrating 1st wedding anniversary after death of groom.

by Sarah
(Boston, MA)

This year my parents would be celebrating their 38th wedding anniversary. Sadly, my father rather suddenly passed away in January so this anniversary and upcoming holidays are not going to be joyous AT ALL. His death has devastated us children and emotionally crippled my already disabled mother. He was everything for her but only now she sees the sacrifices he had made and how blessed she was to have his love. So how do we celebrate their years of devotion without making it any more heartbreaking for her than it obviously already will be? I can't seem to even find a card celebrating their endless love and devotion without it being directed to a couple with both partners still with us.

Celebrating the Life
by: Ms P Etiquette


This is indeed a sad time in your family. However, your parents' life together deserves celebration. While remembering some things may cause sadness, try to focus on uplifting and inspiring events in each of your lives, not just your parents.

The love in your family will carry the day as long as the participants agree to celebrate more than grieve. This could be a remarkable experience for everyone. I wish you all peace of mind.
