I remember a mom of a teen was having a horrible time dealing not only with her kid's suicide, but that he'd killed himself on his birthday. So she couldn't even have his birthday as a positive day of memories. It was heartbreaking.<quoted text>
You've got a good husband. Are his parents still together?
I'm sorry that this is how your Mom is spending her birthday, even if she is making the best of it. My Grandfather died on my Dad's 60th birthday and the one year anniversary is coming up this month. My Grandmother is very upset that they both fall on the same day.
More dramatic than what your grandma is dealing with, but I get what she's upset about.
