I have two ideas. One is cheap, the other not so much but could be divided among the six of you.

The first is to find a family frame with a center photo for her and 6 around it for each child. Do this for each of your siblings. But here is the catch. Have each sibling choose the family photos they want to fill in for each sibling. That way, each frame has the best memories from each kid, and each would be different.

The other is to purchase one (with the ability to copy each page for cheap) a Fake Newspaper. Take the life events that mattered to your family, her birth, her marriage, each kid's birth, etc.

They can be found almost anywhere.

Our mother always wanted us to have 'girls' outings. 3 sisters and her... so now we do this as often (yearly) as we can. We always have our mother with us in spirit. So - suggesting you have a family gathering to honor and remember your mother!


Doesn't have to be a week long - just a day if all live nearby or a couple of nights somewhere she would have loved to visit! God Bless.

My Mom passed away 2 years ago and this year if she was alive she would have been 50 years old. I want to through a birthday party for her in remembrance of her. I've planned on inviting all of her friends and our family. I just need some help on the wording for the invitations.

Thanks a lot.

What a lovely idea, Jamie.

How about "Celebrating a Life" as the heading? Followed by something like, "Let's get together to remember (your mom's name).


She would have turned 50 this (date). Bring your favourite photograph or anecdote."
