You do not need to celebrate, this is entirely up to you and what you feel. I lost my son 10 years ago and We do not have a party but typically just enjoy the day with memories and throwing a message in a bottle out to sea. Maybe just a special dinner to honor his memories followed with the balloons. Have you asked the older boys what they would like to do to honor their brother on his birthday, they may have ideas as well. I just realized this post is over a year ago. What did you end up doing?
