  • Celebrate. Observe. I don't see why not. It would be a quiet, reverent, solemn observance. But she would still be a mother.

  • "Get to," sure. But "want to?" That might be the more important question...

  • Its up to the mother I think. She was a mother and still is, just her child is no longer with her. My sister died and my mom still says she has 3 kids even though just 2 of us are alive. They dont stop being their child if they die. If the mother is comfotable enough to celebrate mothers day, then by all means go ahead and a have a wonderful mothers day. Maybe make it a tradition and go to the grave site and place flowers on it. My mom does.
