Making a Difference Even After Death

Aug 1, 2022 | Articles & Information

Each life has meaning and value.  We feel this loss deeply and often struggle to find our way through the overwhelming grief.  Being able to channel our energy into a project that helps to honor and celebrate the life of our loved one can be part of the healing journey.  There are many ways to commemorate our loved ones that are as unique as that person’s personality. 

For example, adopting a local trail that was the favorite walking or hiking trail of the deceased and hosting a beautification walk throughout the year on special or significant dates with friends and family to ensure that it is kept clean might be one idea. 

Another idea could be creating a scholarship fund to be awarded to a deserving person who aspires to higher education or has a particular interest or major that matches that of the lost loved one. 

Donations of needed items to women’s shelters or books for schools could be a special way to contribute to the well-being of others on behalf of our loved one. Also, leading an annual fundraising drive to find a cure for a particular disease or to pay for expenses incurred by families who have children treated at the Ronald McDonald House or St. Jude’s Hospital is a way to honor a loved one and can also bring support for others in need. 

Such acts of kindness for others in the name of your lost loved one can bring solace, meaning and healing.  These are just a few ideas of projects that are an enduring way to commemorate and celebrate a beautiful life that continues to make a difference in the lives of others even after they have passed.
