Remember a parent who lost a child with a card or phone call on the birthday of the child and the one-year anniversary. The bereaved parent will be painfully aware of these dates but others may be reluctant to acknowledge them. Let the parent know that you are aware of what day it is and that your thoughts are with them. If you are very close to them you may also want to invite them out for the day and help them busy themselves. Take your lead from them.
