35. Send her the pictures.

You are worried her heart will be broken when she sees them but her heart is already broken with his loss. Your act could lessen that hurt.

Over the years I've lost students and when I retired from teaching several yrs ago I found papers and photos that belonged to some of them. I managed to return some to the parents and they were appreciative. Most people would like to have something else to hold on to and would be warmed by the idea their son was not forgotten.

I think she would appreciate your reaching out to her. I agree with the person who suggested you give her a call first so she's not caught unprepared.

Don, this is a lovely thing you're offering her. Hope you're feeling better soon. You are showing a lot of compassion by giving this so much thought.
