The Picture


You people are the best! Thank you for all the support and ideas. As you can see I am now in possession of the school picture. I emailed Nathan’s teacher and she didn’t have it in her files. She asked one of the school secrataries, Anne. Anne knew Nathan well. He would sit in the office and chat her up during reces when he wasn’t up to going outside. She let him sit on a stool next to her desk. Anne called Lifetouch and I was told yesterday they were sending a package that I could order from and I should expect it in 7 – 10 days. Instead, Fedex just showed up at the house with a package with many portraits and a CD of the image! The CD case was specially designed for such a situation. I wish there never was a need to send out pictures to bereaved parents but I am so grateful that Lifetouch provides this service.

As far as the computer – I am now going to give the hard drive to my friend’s husband who is an electrical engineer. He has graciously offered to see what he and his coworkers can do. I am not expecting to be able to recover the data (there are more pictures on there I have lost) but I have come to terms with that. I have been able to hook it up to my desktops but neither will recognize the drive. If the data can be recovered that will be awesome but I am not counting on it.
