Share a Silly Holiday Memory

Share a silly memory of your loved one during the holiday season.

Discuss Traditions

Are there any traditions that you want to change this holiday season? Gift giving If gift giving is a part of your holiday celebration, before the gifts are exchanged, have each family talk about a special gift the loved one has given to them. It could be a tangible gift or perhaps even more meaningful would be an intangible gift.


Ask family members for ways they would like to incorporate the loved one that has died into the “season of family.” This could mean including a portrait or belonging to be a part of the decorations, positioning an empty chair at the table, setting out their favorite coffee mug, or an array of other meaningful items. Look for ways to honor and remember your loved one as you go through the holiday season.

Memory Candles

 Purchase cylinder candles. Use a variety of materials such as self-adhesive foamy shapes, letters, jewels to decorate candle. Written words and/or phrases and scrapbooking supplies can be attached with Modge-Podge. Especially meaningful could be including photos or pictures of loved ones and family that can be attached with Modge-Podge. The family can choose a way to incorporate a family ritual when lighting this candle to remember your loved one.

For additional ideas and holiday support, download the Holiday Toolkit.


Family orientation will be at Adam's Place on Tuesday, January 16th at 5pm.
