Anniversary of a death

Ok this is a tough situation that I have no idea how to address.

My fiance's mother died one year ago tomorrow and although I never met her I feel like I should do something for my fiance and possibly say something to my future father-in-law. I will probably take my fiance out to dinner at her favorite resturant, but what should I say to my future father in law?

    Your heart is in the right place. I think a sincere card for you FFIL would be really nice and appreciated.

    If you don't see him/talk to him often, I would send your FFIL a card in the mail. I only received one card the year after my brother died, and I would have loved to see more. If you will see him that day, I would say something short and sweet to your FFIL, "I know MIL died one year ago today. I'm so sorry for your loss." He can change the subject or invite more conversation depending on what he is comfortable with.

    I agree that a card would be a nice gester.

    I agree that a card would be a nice gesture, I would just write something inside to let him know that you're thinking about him at this time.
