Is it normal to keep old voicemails and messages from a now dead relative?
Just wondering, my Uncle passed away about a month ago? And I discovered on my phone that before he died, I still have old voicemails of when he left me messages on my phone before he died? Is that healthy or is that unhealthy for a person to gloss over old messages on their phone from a deceased Uncle? I don’t know if I ever plan on deleting them or getting rid of them? May be the only way I would ever have something to remind me of him!!
record that before the phone company deletes it
I do that, too,
I still have old photos from my dead neighbor. I distinctively remember taking a photo with her before she moved out it's no different than doing that.
It is totally normal to save messages from long lost good friends and mentors in your life.
In what universe would this be considered not normal?
If you do it to hold onto fond memories of him it’s normal and kind of cute.
Totally normal. You don’t want to forget his voice, and keeping that recording is no different from keeping photos of family members as a way to remember how they looked.
