Zahidah often finds herself reminiscing about life before Sharib’s death. She shows a set of pictures to people when she talks about her son. “I did not know we had them,” she said. “I found them hidden in my clothes drawer. This is all I have of him now.”

She shows the set of images to Mohamad Sharib’s older sister while talking to her in Malaysia. They did not take very many pictures of themselves in Myanmar or Malaysia, money was limited, and priorities were different. It was only after they started living in the United States that they were able to save money and buy their sons smartphones.
