Planning a Memorial Service

My mom died when I was 8 and its been a rough road since then. I really don't get along with her parents because I've always felt they had unrealistic expectations of me-they want so badly to see so much of their only daughter in me, but the truth is, I take after my dad. My parents had a messy divorce so I think that's really painful for them. I think my grandmother has been hurting a lot because I don't really talk about my mother much. I thought it might be nice if I planned a big memorial service. It would give me a chance to show my grandmother how I really did love my mother but I mourned an entirely different person from her-she mourned her daughter of 34 years, I mourned my mother of 8. Has anyone hosted a memorial service for a loved one over 10 years after their death? What do you think would be nice?

  • I think that would be nice. Maybe you could put together a nice slide show of your mother. Include pictures throughout her life.
