|Halacha - Halachas of mourning a parent|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
I'm sorry but one may not send a greeting card or present to someone who is within the year after the passing of a parent. Additionally, they would not participate in a social gathering such as a birthday party. However you certainly should let your friend know that you are thinking of them and did not forget about their momentous occasion.
