There is something so wrong about that. Most parents would be devastated to lose such precious belongings of their child's and even more so if that child died. Pictures? How do you leave behind pictures? I had 5 of exact same picture of my dad and was supposed to give one to each of my little brothers. It took me over 10 years to part with those precious pictures, even though I had triplicate of it. I can barely bring myself to delete pictures of my kids even though I have tens of thousands. I don't get it. This story doesn't add up, it never has.
