Everyone lives with sorrow in different ways. Some find they have a multitude of grief emotions to work with.

Looking for Ideas for Tributes for Mothers?

One of the best tributes I have listened to was written by my uncle at the death of his dad, my grandfather. My grandfather was a farmer and my uncle used the working of the soil, planting, harvesting, and feeding of livestock as metaphors for how my grandfather related to people in life. Metaphors create beautiful pictures with words and help people understand something in a deeper way. So consider using a metaphor as part of your tribute to your mother.

  • Read the tributes of others.
  • Reflect on some of the things your mom taught you as a child and how she raised you.
  • Think about the best times you had with your mom.
  • Tell about the example your mom set for you in adult life.
  • Write what your learned from your mom about relating to people and family.
  • Write a letter to your mom about the things you would love to say to her if she were still here with you
