We lost my father in law 2 years ago, we cremated him and did a burial at sea...he was an avid fisherman and loved the ocean, anyway, on the anniversary of his death we take roses out to the harbor and drop them on the water for him, then have dinner right there at a little restaurant that was the last place we ate with him.
Think of something that shares a special moment....maybe since it was his birthday, something as simple as baking a birthday cake for his dad.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
