Loss and Anniversaries

7 Jun 2021

Bereavement supporters stay with with their clients

and support them throughout the allocated time, six weeks, sometimes

longer, accompanying them on part of the way and supporting them

while they undergo some of the stages of their personal grief journey

which can be very painful.

I started seriously thinking of anniversaries when at the beginning of March two years ago a well loved colleague died. I remember him with warmth and affection. I rang a friend on 20 May who informed me that it was exactly thirteen years since her husband had died. She seemed glad to share this significant day with someone.

An anniversary that I commemorate in a small but distinct way is

the date we moved to Lampeter from Birmingham in mid-August

33 years ago. It has proved a landmark in my memory. I realise that I have lived in Lampeter for longer than I have lived in any other place.

Are there any days that are significant for you during your year and which you like to commemorate or celebrate? Or to consider or reflect on.
