  • The question should be what do you want to do? Im so sorry for your loss. Sometimes when we opt not to deal with things it often comes out later on down the line in a painful way. If your ready to begin or continue on with the healing process then you need to do what is comfortable for you .........good luck and gentle hugs.

  • I would celebrate his life.. Just go out to dinner or visit his grave. You shouldnt not grieve, its only been a year. Do something dont ignore the day... You loved him and miss him why ignore it.

  • If it helps you then light a candle flip though pictures or even see about visiting with his family if you were close. Ther is no reson to 'dwell in the past' but sometimes remembering is part of healing.

  • Whatever works for you. Don't try to ignore it if you can't forget it. But only you know what will help the most - spending the day focusing on other things, or getting it all out there and aknowledging your loss.

  • Recognize it.
    If he was the love of your life, you arent going to forget about what happened on that date. And if you try to ignore it, it may make you feel worse. Remember him, light a candle, buy the kind of flowers he always brought you and put them in a vase on your table, or just take a minute that day to say "I miss you. I love you. I hope you have found peace.".
