Landon is finally coming home this Friday! This means I can finally give Aidan the memorial he deserves, and give myself and Chris the chance to say our good-bye's. I would like to have a more private memorial, possibly here at my house. We have pictures and video's, all of him after he passed away. The video's are without a doubt, very heart breaking. Is it appropriate to play these at the memorial? Do you think people, especially our friends, will be able to handle seeing this? I'm really not sure how to go about planning a memorial for Aidan, I've never had to do anything like this before. Any tips would be nice if you have any. Thanks in advance.

Congratulations on Landon's upcoming release! That is wonderful news.

I don't have a lot of advice about your memorial. Just do it however you and your husband want. Don't worry too much about the other people's opinions because it's not their son's memorial. Oh, other advice is to ask someone to take a lot of pictures, you might wish you had more later.

It's certainly up to you weather or not you'd like to show the video. I definitely don't think it's inappropriate. The memorial is really for you and your husband's benefit so you have free reign to conduct it however you like. I will say that people tend to get pretty uncomfortable seeing picutures/video of the dead, so you should consider whether or not it will offend you if people get uncomfortable about it.
