What I decided to do to honor my mother (who died 10 years ago) was to keep the nursing home where she died filled with books.  I have been doing that for a long time, plus at Christmas I fixed up 6 big bags of gifts and asked the nurse to be sure they went to residents who had no relatives.  I also buy and place floral arrangements in the gathering rooms (with the big screen TV) and book cases.

It does my heart good.
