An anniversary is an important milestone and people celebrate different kinds of anniversaries - it could be the day you met that special someone, got engaged, married etc. These events are a way of reminiscing precious moments and cherishing the times you spent with the person.

After the demise of a loved one, these days can become full of sorrow as they are a reminder of the person you have lost and the moments you have shared with him or her. We at Tindall Funeral Home, recommend you follow these techniques while handling challenging anniversaries after death:

  • Do a different take on the anniversary - You can also celebrate the anniversary in the same manner you always celebrated it. Spend some time with family and friends, go out and enjoy an evening. Sometimes, a change of pace can help you recover from the grief you are feeling.
     
  • Involve yourself in a meaningful activity - If your loved one had a bucket list of things to do or a charity they wanted to be involved in, you can do that on their behalf. It will help you feel more connected with the person even as it gives you an avenue to process your grief.

Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know about our funeral services and need advice on different services.
