MSR...Sorry you have such a void in your life without Crick...I sure have a lot of voids in my life...Some people (and pets too) just can't be replaced. Rough! Sad!

And I also feel loss when familiar landmarks change or disappear. Til you mentioned it, I didn't think of that in the same context of losing people, but it is a similar feeling.
I get this feeling but also as its with places associated with I and my partner...places he used we used to shop at, go out for dinner, etc. They close or otherwise change somehow, and I think of it as an ongoing shutting down and "forgetting" of our life togehter, the disappearance of tangible reminders of our life together, how it slips more into memory.

There are also places I dont go anymore because of the close association.

The disappearance of landmarks, in a general sense, was addressed in a book by Mindy Fullylove (about the impact of mass demolitions associated with the big urban renewal programs from a generation or two ago)
