Hard to know
I always find it so hard to know how to deal with these kinds of anniversaries.
It was one year ago that my mom died, and the anniversary of my dad's death was last week.
I don't know of any -- oh, what's the word I'm looking for? -- format? tradition? for these days. I suppose if I were religious I would go to church and light a candle, but that doesn't seem right to me for either of them.
And so I go through my day, thinking my thoughts of each of them, trying to comprehend that another year has gone by, trying to understand this life "after."
