The same goes for Facebook pages. I have a few "friends" who have passed on. Every once in awhile, I check their Facebook pages to see if a relative has posted anything. It happens.
Another thing is my address book. I keep a regular one with real pages (not digital). There are deceased relatives and friends in there. I eventually mark one line through the name and address so as not to completely block them out, and I have been known to put the date of death somewhere on their line in the address book.
Why? I really do not know!

I feel weird deleting the contacts in my phone too. Like it means I've deleted them from my life forever (even though I have no control of them not being here).

I don't have a problem with deleting the old numbers, but so far, those numbers don't have a voice mail message attached, with that person speaking on it. I can see why you'd want to hold on to that.


For me, though, I don't think it would be healthy for me to keep going back to it over and over. Same reason I couldn't get a tattoo in memory of. I would take me right back to that first immediate pain of the loss, and never allow me to get through it.

But everyone is different. Just because I can't stand the thought doesn't mean you're wrong for doing the exact opposite. No one should think they are weird or wrong for doing something different than others.

I wouldn't dream of removing my son's phone number. I'm keeping everything of his.

I had a voice recording of my mother, coughing. That's all, just coughing. Apparently she decided to call later when it would be easier for her. She passed away several months later. Silly as it sounds, I kept that recording for several years until it got erased. After all, it was my mother's voice---um, cough
