I have a 10-yr-old son who (by his own choice) had no relationship with his dad after our divorce. My son was just getting to the point where he could tell his father how he felt when his father passed away.
My son didn’t want to go to the service. But I would like to do something with him, as some kind of remembrance and acknowledgement of loss.
All I can really think of is balloon release — where you write a note to put inside and let it go. I suppose this isn’t really a bad idea. But was looking online to see what else I could come up with, and couldn’t find any other ideas for memorial ceremonies.
Can anyone think of a way for us to privately and symbolically observe an memorial for someone? -Kimberley R.
How can you hold a private ceremony to symbolically mark remembrance and acknowledgement of loss?
