How do you honor and remember a departed loved one?

We all have our own way of remembering loved ones who have gone before us. Some of us conduct various religious rituals on the anniversary of the death of our loved ones. It doesn't need to be a religious ritual but is there anything you continue to do to honor and remember those loved ones who have left you?

Having had two of my 3 children die and having been through this "hideous" experience twice, i think of them every day.
I light a candle on their death anniversaries, and cry buckets on their birthdays.

There is an old Jewish saying that goes something like this -there is a word for when a husband or a wife who dies, however the death of a child is so horrific, there is not a word for it.

It's been a year now since I lost my mother. It has been a very painful experience as I was very close to her. I try to live up to her expectations and try to educate my kids to her teachings. She had been a great teacher for me and a great source of inspiration. I also pray to God that she be at peace wherever she is.
By living your life in a way that they would have wished for
I try not to do anything....I find it can be a dangerous place to go.

Grief is something we all have to face, at some time.
Our loved ones,would only want us to be happy.So with that in mind, I continue to go forward, no looking back.
It becomes too painful otherwise.
I think simply remembering them is act act of honouring a loved one.
We visit the sites of their burial on Christmas, Easter, birthdays and death anniversaries. We pray and leave flowers.
