Because we all have fond memories of the years gone by, we might as well bond over it. ♥

Do you have any treasures from a loved one who's no longer in your life?

Posted 11 Months ago by Weird Occurance

Could be something as simple as a gift from an ex or something you have from a passed relative.

I have a wallet with my grandfather's initials on it that he'd never used. It was in his dresser drawer when he passed.
My dad gave it to me because I always said I wanted a men's wallet - and it happened to be my grandfather's.

What are some of your treasures?

I have the dishes my ex and I got when we got married.
I have my father’s wallet and Indian driver license from 53 years ago when we lived in India.
I have cuttings from the plants planted on my parents’ grave(s) and my ex’s grave. They’re not doing too well, but they’re not dead yet.
I think I have a couple of posters from my first ex.

Having a family member's wallet is such a small, easy way to feel closer to them, isn't it?
That's cool that you lived in India.

I love this! When my parents retired and moved away, Mom gave me an orchid she'd have for a number of years.
I cannot keep a plant alive for anything, so it didn't make it, which was heartbreaking. Just having it made me feel closer to my mom.

Very cool.
I have a David Bowie vinyl from my dad. He was a radio DJ at one point, apparently, so he had like 5 crates of vinyls from back then. That was one he gave me. The rest (read: anything that wasn't The Doors or Eric Clapton) got thrown out.

What a nice sentimental thing to hold on to.
Do you ever look at them?

I use them every day. Unless I just flat forget to eat!

Even better! They're more than just display pieces, then. :)

I used to be big into Yugioh. I would go over to my brother's and play with my nieces and nephews and their friends all weekend long.

My brother was moving from one house to another and in the interim he rented a hotel room until the new place was ready. The girls were in Florida at the time but the boys were with us. My older nephew invited his friends over one Saturday and we had a little tournament in the room. My nephew taped a couple of sheets of paper together and made a bracket tree on it. At the very top he drew a big ol' crown and wrote in big letters "King of Games". We dueled all day.

He came to my house once and saw that I had the bracket list hanging on my wall. Upon seeing it he said, "Wow, I can't believe you kept this". We both smiled and talked about it and agreed that it was the funnest day we ever had.

A few years ago my nephew moved to Arizona and then passed away tragically. I still have that thing he made on my wall in the living room. You know, he won the tournament that day, too.

This is so touching. I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you for sharing. <3

My dad, God rest his soul, was a professional amateur photographer and videographer, if you will, and my mother and I still have thousands of his photos and videos from throughout the years, both digitally and physically. He took pictures and video of EVERYTHING, and I have the materials to prove it.

Other than that, we have a grandfather clock that my Deda (my paternal grandfather) built for my parents probably before I was born; he passed two years ago.

Awww it’s like you can relive his memories through his photos and videos.
That’s amazing. Do you look through them often?

He must’ve been inventive.
My grandmother has a grandfather clock in her house that I’d like to inherit one day. Every time I hear it chime, I remember spending time with them as a kid.
