Collecting Mementos

It seems that whenever a celebrity I really admired passes away, I immediately have to go and purchase something in memory of them. It's sort of like an "ode" to them and their legacy.

When Robin Williams passed away, I purchased the first season of Mork and Mindy a few days after.

When Cynthia Lennon passed (first wife of John Lennon) I searched the internet far and wide for an autographed book of her biography as well as her audio book.

With the recent passing of Alan Rickman, I ordered myself a mug from Redbubble with a big picture of himself as Professor Snape splattered across.

He was one of my favourite characters in the Harry Potter series!

How 'bout you - do you collect little mementos in honour of a loved one (famous or not!)
