Anniversaries are difficult, both as a marker during the grieving process and as a sometimes unexpected reminder later on. Most people agree the first is the worst. That was certainly true for me. I’ve now got 20 behind me – birthdays, ‘death days’ and 19 Christmases. So how does one cope? In these internet days, it’s easy to find loads of tips: poetry, private rituals, you name it. I tend to find that burying the most difficult day in a short trip abroad does wonders. Certainly, nothing would work for everyone, as this is all so personal. What it comes down to in the end, is that you’ve just got to find your own way for getting through it.
