I am linking to this article which a niece of ours wrote in connection with my son's first death anniversary

09 February 2014

My son's first death anniversary came and went.  We, belonging to the Orthodox Eastern Church tradition, pray for the dead, as Catholics do.  So Mass and prayers at the grave are very important, all of which were done.  Our extended family were there.  I was touched that people called remembering him.

My daughter had brought with her a sky lantern, which she wanted to send up in memory of her brother.  That was done yesterday and it was a beautiful sight.  As it was a very clear night, we were able to watch it flying really high and far, till the light in it finally went out.
