Question 1 Year - March 25th 2010, 04:58 AM

It's been one year since a best friend died of cancer, and I don't know what to do. I want to honor her, but am not sure how. Any ideas?

Love everyone

I'm very sorry for your loss.
If you have a Facebook, make a memorial group or page for her and ask everyone to support it and join, write a poem for her or some of the good times you had together. Just remember the good times you had with her, and I'm sure she is watching over you and knows you love her and are thinking of her.

one good thing you may do is to go to some place she loved, close your eyes, and just focus on your love for her. it's like trying to send a message to the afterlife. or you could simply honor her by cherishing your life and accepting things as they come. she wouldn't want you to dwell on her too much.

Relay for Life is coming up. I had a 19 yr. old friend who died of cancer a few years ago and there are luminaries you can get to honor them. If you aren't familiar with Relay for Life is a major fund raising event for cancer. I think it comes around in May. I hope this helps.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. One of my friends has cancer and is really ill at the moment. It is so hard when you lose someone close to you and anniversaries can bring up all sorts of feelings. I know I personally find anniversaries really difficult days to get through. But instead of getting really upset about it you could try to do something special to remember your friend.

Just remember you are not alone because I know that can make you feel so much worse. Stay strong

Sometimes just remembering them in your heart is honoring them in the best way possible.

I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
