71 : Ways to remember your child this season

In this episode, I am going to share with you some tips on how your child will be noticed or remembered in this holiday season.


If you want your child remembered, plan something or do something that will remember them, and don’t expect or wait for others to do that.So if you want something in particular, plan it, get it, create it, spread the word, whatever you need to do.



Here are some ideas that we do in particular to remember Aria:


  • A picture frame with a lot of pictures of her.
  • We light a candle at the gathering that we are at.
  • In our home, we have a statue of a little girl, wind chimes, bird feeder. On Christmas, we have a few more things like ornaments.
  • Our tradition is that Santa brings something in Aria’s stocking.In her stocking comes a game or puzzle, or last year was a year pass to the science museum.
  • We go sing at the cemetery on Christmas Eve. 
  • We have gone to Angel of Hope ceremonies, and different events put on by the hospitals.
  • For All Saint’s Day, it was a very special moment when Justin had the kids blow out candles we had lit, and before they could blow out the candle, they would say something they remembered about Aria or something they wished they could do with her. 


Keeping your child’s memory alive and talking about them is something I know you want so badly. You never want them to be forgotten. So keep their memory alive. Do things that feel like you can connect to them.


Other things that you can do :


  • Bake something they liked
  • Write letters to them
  • Lit a candle for them
  • Ask other people what a memory they have is of them
  • Watch some videos if you have some
  • Donate to a cause in their name
  • If you find something that you could buy for your child and wish you could, buy it and gift it to someone else
  • Play their favorite music or music that reminds you of them
  • Create a memory book of them
  • Create a memory video
  • Send out cards
  • Do a fundraiser like a 5k run or walk in their memory
