8. He was her son and my husband...

...and she is happy for the mementos that I send, even though she accuses me (never to my face) of stealing her grandchild, of being the reason he is no longer here, of basically everything that's been bad in her life. (On edit: I do know that deep down there somewhere that she loves me--and I love her as well. Without her, there would have been no him)

But the things that I give her that look of him, or have his touch--those she appreciates. I do it for me as much as for her.

If it were me, I would send the pictures.

Anytime someone speaks of Leonard to me, it's a gift because I feel they have forgotten him. That, before long, I will be the only person who remembers that this awesome man once graced the earth. When people speak of him or give me a picture, he lives again--almost real--for a moment.
