Who will keep my photos when I am gone ?!

I met a colleague who had been in Mexico for 2 weeks on vacation and when I asked her for pics, her reply gave me a jolt. She said ''I did not take any as there is no one who will want to keep my photos''. She is retiring soon, her parents are no more and she has no siblings. She said ''I already have a bunch of photos that will probably be thrown away when I am dead'' - this is by far the saddest thing I have heard in a long time. I was so tempted to say ''I can keep them'' but I know she wanted love and not sympathy. I said a small prayer for her and silently thanked God for all the near and dear ones I have and will have.
