I should really remove all the dead people from my phone... I just can't bring myself to delete them though.

Off to see a film now.

I know exactly how you feel.

Yesterday had one of those horrible moments when I thought of something silly and thought 'must text X about that'...and then remembered he was gone...awful...

I sent a text from my Uncle's old phone last night to see if it was working OK. Heard my phone beep (sonic screwdriver sound) and forgot about it. This morning I wake up to find I had a message from my uncle... Had a couple of seconds of "WTF?" before I remembered it was me.

Tricky one, I can see the point of keeping them, and if it serves the purpose of making you remember with a smile then good. But if it is too painful and continues to be, they have to go. Life is all about letting go, in the end. Just make sure you enjoy what and who you have got at the time you have them as you never know what will be around the next corner. I remember my nan with a smile because I have an image of her in my head when she was strong, fit and healthy. She was amazing. But I don't want to see any photos.
A friend in the states has just buried his sister, what do I say to comfort him - nothing, he has to deal with it in his own way. I can't even be there for him, and he isn't that close either, yet I want to help.

'Tis true
I had both parents still on my answering machine message but I acccidentally deleted them both - it hurt like hell though when I'd realised what I'd done

Oh no! Is it a tape one? If it is there's a chance the recording could still be on it.

Somewhere in the chaos that is my flat there is an old answering machine mini tape with my mum's voice on it. If I ever find it I will get a player and give it a listen... on a day I'm feeling incredibly strong.
