    memorial day?

    Is it ok to say " Today is My friend's memorial day"? I mean to say today is the day he died many years ago. Is there another expression?

    Is there another expression? You can say, 'My friend died on this day (12 years ago)(in 1996).'

    I just don't think the word "anniversary" is used for deaths.
