Well I used to have those anniversaries with birth and death of my baby. I used to cope by marking it in some way eg cleaning up his headstone, putting flowers planted in his grave grave etc. Writing a note to him. But if it was a friend I don’t know. When it was anniversary of parents after five years sand flowers. My husband hasn’t been dead that long yet and not know if I will be here then.
I think you might cope by marking it in the same way. Maybe go somewhere special and think about them. You will cope. Some people cope better alone as I do but others don’t.
