I usually do something around Halloween/Samhain rather than Easter, but I understand, I think, the longing to do something.There are a couple of simple things.. . .A couple of small candles, one for each person. Choose a color that seems appropriate for each person. Carve a name on the candle with a knife or just strongly bring the person to mind while holding the candle.Light the candles.Write some things you remember about each person on separate pieces of paper. Focus on the candle and bring the person to mind strongly again. Tell the person you're thinking of him/her. Tell them what you remember and that you'll hold them in your heart. If you believe in some kind of reincarnation, then tell them you hope you recognize them when they return or something along those lines.Burn the papers. Let the candles burn until they are gone. Bury the ashes or throw them into a moving body of water, releasing any attachments to them as you do.Since we're not very far from Beltaine, it might be good to do it then (April 30/May 1) as it's exactly opposite on the wheel of the year from Samhain, and the veil between the worlds is also rather thin on that night.If you do this then, though, you should also do something to celebrate new life - as that's what Beltaine is more about.Ishtar
