I have a question for people who have experienced a significant loss in their lives. Do you want friends and family members to acknowledge the anniversary date of a significant death, or not say anything?
I am in a situation where I called a widow on the second anniversary of her husband's death to let her know I was thinking about her and to call me if she wanted to talk.
My mother told me that I should not have done this, because it would make the widow sad to be reminded that this was the day. However, I would think that a widow would be more likely to forget Christmas day than to forget the day that her husband died, and I wanted to let her know that I remembered as well and that I care about her.
My question is: was this inappropriate to remind the widow? Should I have said nothing?
