In January, we begin a New Year and many of us have New Year’s resolutions such as losing weight, getting more exercise or doing something positive to improve our lives such as being more understanding towards our loved ones.

After a spouse’s suicide surviving parents may look into the rooms of their home and see remnants of a family life that is upside down. As a family begins to acclimate to the disorder posed by the beginning of the grief journey, it might be useful to realize that a world where meaningful structure has been disabled by a traumatic loss adds an element of strangeness in familiar spaces.

In June, we set aside a day to honor our fathers. It is a day where we buy a gift or do something special for our fathers. The traditional gifts that fathers are given on this day range from a shirt, a tie or something for the toolbox, or something else manly. Those gifts are contrasted with the gifts we give to our mother – flowers, a box of candy or something more feminine. The cards are different. Very often a Father’s Day card has a scene that is something from the outdoors or something that is masculine as opposed to the cards that we have for our mothers. Even the messages very often lack the warmth and the care that it has in cards that are meant for our mothers. The biggest day of the year for cemetery visitation is Mother’s Day. Why not Father’s Day?
