Your parents are an instrumental part of who you are. From your first steps across the living room floor to your steps of achievement across the stage at graduation, your parents have watched you grow and have contributed to elements of your personality. Perhaps you never even realized the extent of this dedication until you became a parent yourself. When a parent is facing a life-limiting illness, it’s difficult to process the emotions surrounding the event. During times like this, we find that it is important to capture your parent’s legacy. We’ll show you how and provide some wonderful ideas.
Mother’s Day. Father’s Day. Birthdays. Holidays.
These special occasions are supposed to be filled with joy and thanksgiving, but for those who have lost one or both parents, the events are tinged with unrelenting sadness and grief. These anniversaries serve as a constant reminder that those they loved are no longer by their side. When these dear people leave our lives, they leave a huge, empty space that no one can fill. Everyone processes grief in a different way, and there is no “right” way to go through it.
