And how about that voice mail message from the deceased, taking up space on your memory?

There’s all the difference between striking out and leaving behind, perhaps? (Yorkshire people do it to save the ink.)More a moving on that a sundering, anyway. Hmnn…

From personal experience, it’s been more a case of never crossing out the deceased (electronically or actually), but when the next address book comes along, I haven’t put them into the new one, or phone, etc.

A metaphor for life moving on without them? Or just saving a bit of ink?

Yup, mobile phone or good old-fashioned address book, deletion gives one a nasty little lurch – but maybe that’s all necessary and good, in due course? Or, if it feels right, why not leave it there as a little memorial, an occasional calling to mind?
