5 Ways to Honor a Loved One After They Have Passed
Celebrating the life of a loved one through honorable activities is a great way to get the family and friends together and pay a tribute to a loved one. Participating in these activities together allows everyone to dedicate a day and keep the memory of a loved one alive in their hearts.
Here 5 different activities you can do:
Give Back in Their Name: If your loved one donated to a charity and was passionate about the values and goals of the organizations they were supporting, get together with your family and volunteer your time in your loved one’s name or make a donation in their name.
Potluck: Set up a time for everyone to gather and enjoy a nice meal together. Get everyone to make one thing as a potluck, that your loved one really enjoyed eating, and spend the night together telling stories and reminiscing on great memories.
Balloon Messages: Give everyone a balloon to blow up and write a personal message on. Attach ribbon or string to the balloon and have everyone let them go either a place that has a lot of meaning to your loved one or at your home where everyone is gathered. This is a great activity for birthdays, Christmas or any other important day to your loved one and family.
Carry Out Traditions: If your loved one had a tradition that they were loyal to on a specific day, keep the tradition going. As you all gather together and take part in this personal touch by your loved one, you can keep them alive in your memories during the holidays or special occasions.
Quilt: You can use pieces of clothing, other blankets, or even photos that have been transferred onto a material, putting them all together in a quilt that can be passed down from generation to generation.
As you move forward in your life, after the loss of a loved one, doing honorable tributes is a way to overcome your pain and grief. You are still involving your loved one into your life.
