All thats left is a photograph

I seem to be getting obsessed with getting photographs if David or me and David printed and enlarged. I worry am i making my house into a shrine, has anyone else done this. I am also framing pics of David with other family members and giving them the photo. !

I thought that about myself, too, recently. Steve’s daughter came to my home last week, she hasn’t been since early March and I looked at my house from her perspective.
In the kitchen there are fridge magnets of him, a large canvas of us and his funeral service sheet displayed on a shelf. In the living room there is a large canvas, a framed picture of the two of us and anther picture of us with a candle in front of it. The hall has his drum stool, drumsticks, another large canvas, plus his boots and slippers.
But I like them. And it’s my house. If people don’t want to see it they can stay away. Don’t worry about it.
(Oh, and in my bedroom are his ashes along with the Valentine’s card he gave me last year.)
