Today is my grandmother's birthday.

She was my world. She passed away in 2007, may she rest in peace. But I never forget her birthday. And I have cake for her cause she was a diabetic. I still have it to this very day.

What do you do? Someone who was near and dear to you that has passed away what do you do on their bday?

  • My grandmother's birthday is March 20th. She passed in 2002. I used to cry every year. But I'm better now. I love thinking about her. Happy Birthday to your grandma. HUGS to you.

  • I spend their birthday the wat they would if they were living. I am selfish on my birthday so I always expect that from the next person also. My first bestfriend died from suicide, on her birthday she would go to any bridge and pick the petals of 5 dozen roses and watch as they drift away. Every year for the past 17 years I have done this. I can see her smiling as the petals drift away.
