STICKY REUNION SITUATION ARCHIVES

Our family is having a hard time maintaining momentum for the reunion after the loss of several significant family members/leaders. How do we regain the enthusiasm that we once had when so many family members are feeling grief over the loss of others?  

THE FIX

Why not promote the next reunion as a celebration of the lives and legacies of the deceased family members?  Include all the activities usually associated with the reunion, but set aside a special time/ceremony to honor and celebrate the deceased. You also might invite people to send in and/or present their written remembrances of the deceased. I recommend a display or book of remembrances be prepared for the reunion as well. Perhaps most important is the idea of emphasizing this as a celebration, rather than a funeral or homegoing.

MAINTAINING MOMENTUM
