I'll share what I did. I constantly fought the urge to deface and destroy any pics that had Lie in it. But I couldn't do it. So, the ones of his grandparents, parents, those from his childhood (lost alot in a housefire while growing up) I made sure got back to him, intact.
Over the last year, I've run across pics of his nieces/nephews that had been sent to us over the years. Those I put in a mailer and sent to his mom, they are her g'kids after all. Any that had me in them, if possible, I snipped me out of and sent to her as well. No note, no return addy, but the handwriting is unquestionably mine.
Others of us and the kids thru the 24 years we were a family will be divide and saved for the kids. I'll have to get 2 memory cards for the computer saved ones.
Being the sentimental slob I am, I couldn't do anything else. To me, pictures are to be treasured. Yeah, sometimes it hurts me to see STBXH's face, but I just remember that the guy I once loved so much no longer exists. Those pics are proof that, at one time, we were happy.
I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
