I have always said that my clients have been my best professors.

One of them had a wonderful idea for addressing grief.  Whenever he goes to a funeral for a loved one (he is Roman Catholic), he picks up two Mass Cards.  One he takes home and puts in the usual place (on his refrigerator).  The other one goes with him to Staples, where he gets it laminated.  He then takes a hole punch and puts a hole in the corner.  He then takes a ribbon and ties a cow hitch loop through it and puts it on his Christmas Tree.

Irregardless of your faith background or even if you don’t have a religion, there are always creative ways that you can honor your deceased loved ones at the holidays or any times, and thereby keep them with you.

What are your favorite ways?  List them below so others can benefit.
