Tuesday Tips for Caregivers – Honoring Your Loved One’s Military Service
Those who live in the heart should not be forgotten, but celebrated. Those who have lost a loved one will never stop missing them or thinking about them. While everyone survives their loss differently, some may want to share the story about their special someone and do something extraordinary in their loved one’s honor.
Below are some ideas that may help you honor your loved one and make a difference for others around you:
- Walk or race in your loved one’s honor. There are races and walks to support all kinds of causes. Many times you can connect with people at a race who have experienced similar losses to yours.
- Volunteer in your loved one’s memory. You can work for a cause that your loved one believed in or just work for a good cause and dedicate your work in their memory.
- Make a donation. Doing good for others in your loved one’s memory can make you feel better. You can personally donate to a cause that they believed in or raise funds from others. The size of the donation isn’t important. Simply doing something positive for others can improve how you feel.
- Talk about your loved one. It’s important to remember the joyful times you had with your loved one and talking to family members or mutual friends can help you.
- Look at pictures or watch videos. Photos and videos can help you recall happy memories with your loved one.
- Share your artistic talents. Whether it’s a written remembrance, a scrapbook, an online journal or a memory quilt, spending time creating something to honor your loved one will help you grieve and provide a lasting remembrance for others.
