How Memories Age
Monday, December 01, 2014 by Cynthia Waderlow, MSE, LCSW
The young children in our grief program often struggle with recalling memories of the loved one they lost to suicide. They might say that they remember places, behaviors, or activities that occurred on a regular basis with their loved one, but too often the memories are vague. We know that when children as young as four or five remember the fancy rims on Papa’s wheels, or that father tossed them playfully in the air, or an older brother played soccer and wore a particular kind of hat, they have locked on to something that stands out and carries significance.

As we enter December and we prepare to celebrate Christmas and the celebration of Lights and Hanukkah we are reminded that this is a time to exchange gifts with those people who are important to us and we want to exchange gifts as a reminder that these people deserve something special because of who they are and that we want to express our gratitude to them for being so nice to us and making us feel very special. It is a time when we draw up our own “wish list” of things that we want during this season of gift giving.
