Where I come from, we commemorate the ones who have passed away before us several times after s/he died. We do it on the 3rd day, 7th day, 40th day, 100th day and the 1000th day after s/he passed.
The picture above is what my mom gave away to my father’s family and friends on his 1000th day, which fell on 20 March 1981. The handkerchief is my father’s name, which is hand embroidered by my mom.
