Anniversary

Last week was the 7 year anniversary of my uncle's death. I can't believe it's been 7 years. The fact that we have gone without him for that long feels unfathomable. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him, but anniversaries are always hard.

I'm so sorry for your loss, anniversaries are extremely tough, SF is here for you. What about doing something positive to remember him by lighting some candles and saying a prayer if religious? May he rest in peace.

Thanks for your response @Petal . I actually made a Dia de los Muertos altar this year for him and a close friend that passed. That made me feel really good and was a way to remember some of his favorite things and recall the times we spent together.

I hear you @lightning05 in 11 days time it will be two years since my dad died. And not a single day goes by when he doesn't enter my mind. It can be the slightest reminder of catching a glimpse of the silly teddy I bought him for his last Father's Day to a complete freak out when I chase a guy walking down the street thinking it's him. Yep I did that once.
So much has happened since he died and I haven't been able to talk to him about any of it. In person that is. I talk to him in my mind a lot, and out loud when I go to the cemetery. Yeah I'm nuts but what do you do.

I love the day of the dead and really want to go to Mexico one year to be there in person and I agree it's a great way to remember those no longer here.

You're right anniversaries are hard but the rest of the time is hard too.

You're in my thoughts

@nobodyknows71 I'm really sorry to hear about your dad. Yes it's tough all the time for sure. And talking to him isn't crazy at all. My uncle was cremated but I would still go to the cemetery and talk to him when I needed to. My thoughts are with you as well through this tough time. Grief is just so hard. *hugs*
