Just wondering how people handle these things. My father has been dead for fifteen years. My mother is upset because her would be 50th anniversary is coming up and he left her. She also seems put out that my brother and I don't and never really have acknowledged her anniversary. I barely acknowledge my own and I don't acknowledge my friend's either. Birthdays, yes.

Maybe a nice card and some flowers to let her know that you're thinking of her on what would've been for her, a momentous day.

I had this experience with my grandma when I was in HS. She was weepy on what would have been her 50th anniversary. I spent extra time with her that day and listened to story after story about grandpa. It was so sweet and one of my favorite memories with her.
