Mom has been gone 14 years now. I think this series E relic with our names is kind of cool. I actually thought about filing the paperwork to cash in a "lost" bond, then keeping the paper memento for my album. It certainly wouldn't make good money sense to hold a bond that won't earn interest, right?

Not a bad idea. I would encourage you, at a time of your choosing, to go ahead and file the paperwork to cash in "lost" bonds and keep the paper.

As an aside, I gave my nieces and nephews who are too old for toys 1 oz silver eagle coins for Christmas this year. It may or may not be sentimental to them at some point, and if push comes to shove, its worth the current spot price of silver.
