I'm having a clear out of my phone and I've come across a couple of people who are no longer with us. :angel5: Why am I finding it so difficult to delete their name and mobile number?
Heartand found a massage she had left for my Dad I just could not delete it,it would have felt like I was deleting her so it stays
HeadIt is very sad but you have to let go at some point. Delete them now, it will be harder in the future.
yeah, agree with this. My brother in law died suddenly, unexpected and far too young 18 months ago. We were friends on facebook. Every time I visited the site, his 'ghost' friend visited me too . I couldn't bring myself to delete him for a long, long time. But when I did, it meant I could use the site again without so much pain. And instead, now I remember the good things about him, and when I want to rather than when I am forced to. I don't feel any less love for him, but it is a positive thing rather than a negative thing.I used to be a housing manager and from time to time we would get a new resident who had moved out of the old family home having waited until they just couldn't cope anymore. Without exception, once they were settled in they realised that they still felt the presence of their long-dead spouse, their memories still held them secure.
Stuff is stuff. Things are things. Hanging on to things and stuff can clog up your life and leave you only with the memories of the person you had recorded. If they meant something to you, they will wander into your thoughts from time to time whether you still have their number or not.
Hi,My mom passed away on monday just gone, on tuesday my dad called me from her mobile, my heart jumped into my mouth when i saw the call from "mom" on my phone.
I changed the number to "dad" immediatly after.
Having said that, i still have the number for my best friend Elaine, she passed away 2 yrs ago.
I've been no help really have I?
