Is there something special you do or have done in memory of your loved one? Do you have a special place you go to talk to them or that reminds you or them or perhaps a poem you read or a song you listen to...

If there is something special you do, a place you go, etc...please share. I think it helps not only to share what this is but it helps others to have ideas of ways they may be able to express their grief & longing in a productive & loving way....

My son Noah (twin to my daughter Julia) was born sleeping on 7/22/2008. I just recently got his footprints tattooed on my upper left arm. It's my 5th tattoo, but by far it's my favorite

I have tattoos to mark two of my miscarriages and I have a large plantpot with a duck ornament that I tend to as a memorial to my losses.
