That is absolutely horrible. I couldn't imagine having to deal with that.

I understand though about the avatar. When my grandmother passed away at 96 I couldn't delete her phone number. Sometimes I'd call it and just let it ring. Finally my wife deleted it and initially I was mad, but before I could say anything to her I realized it was best. I couldn't do it and she had to, to allow me to move on.

My Mom passed May, 2014. I still have a couple of videos of her on my phone. I also have her answering machine.
After my Grandmother passed in '95 we kept her phone turned in for almost a year. I would call it occasionally just to hear her voice.

We grieve deeply because we love deeply. I agree with keeping the avatar

I remember when I first saw your avatar and your record of what happened.
I was very touched and still to this day, when I see it I automatically think of
Lucas and whisper a 'Rest in Peace, little guy' to him.

That would be hard to take down. I think it's a great memorial for him and
it helps others to relate to the loss of young life and the consequent pain it
leaves in a family.

You're a good Granddad.

I have a small Buzz Lightyear that hangs from the mirror in my dd, along with a small teddy bear that my Mom had in her car.

Definitely keep it, it is a wonderful tribute. I have thought the same about my Facebook profile pic, my best friend that I lost 4 years ago, but his widow says keeping it is important to a lot of people
