My Angel Cheyanne is having her 1st bday on June 09. She passed away on 2/20/14.
I want to celebrate her bday but just don't have any ideas yet on what to do. So I found this site and read lots of stories on what or how people do

Do you mean what else you could do as a "ritual"(like the balloons) or what you personaly want to do on the day? We have a beautiful angel that is a candle holder and we light a candle every day for my sister or if a loved one is in difficulty we light them a candle aswell.I dont know if you are religous,i personaly am not..i believe in karma and try my best to treat people right and do only good things to people,thats why i cant say to anybody "i will pray for you".But i do light a candle and that is the way i think of somebody for a special reason.I will light a extra candle on the 9 of june for your daughter and your family,my thoughts will be with you. If you ever need help or just feel like talking you can always send me a personal message.

On my sisters birthday we get those helium filled balloons,either heart shaped or pretty ones that have happy birthday on it.We write a little note that we fold,punch a hole in it and tie it onto the balloon.In the evening when all family members and sometimes close family friends are all together, we go outside and sing happy birthday and let the balloons go and fly up. We also have cake together. Doing this every year has helped our family and we will always continue doing it.
I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure your daughter will be dancing with the angels on her birthday,she is in a safe place now.
