Ever buy a Blu-ray to memorialize a family member?

I never saw the old Bond movies, but my grandpa loved Bond. We actually saw 1 or 2 Bond movie in theater. One was not so hot one with Dalton, whichever was second he was in, I believe. And we might have seen Goldeneye with Brosnan, if that was the first in his series. I certainly saw and loved the Brosnan and especially Craig series, and that is bc gpa. But, I donít think I would have bought the once enormous Complete Bond set, up to CR, I believe, but space for Skyfall or something. I donít know. But even bought digital copies of entire series as well and havenít seen a one, but want to. But I know all bc of him. I think my love for spy and spy-like thrillers probably came from him too and the Bond series. Good stuff. Good memories...

Not a Blu-ray, but I bought The High and the Mighty with John Wayne on dvd as a tribute to my grandfather. My grandfather was the one who sparked my love for physical media when we got our first VCR back in 1985. He'd always wanted The High and the Mighty, but it was never released on VHS. In 2005, 10 years after he'd passed away, it finally hit home video with a dvd release.

I thought about buying The Longest Day to memorialize my father but I can't quite talk myself into it as I'm not really into old B&W war movies (neither is my wife). If I bought it, it would probably just sit on the shelf collecting dust.
