The biggest issue here for me are the photo's I had on it. My six year old son passed away this past December from a life long illness and it just breaks my heart to think I'll never see the last pics I had of him again.
First, I'm very sorry about your six year old son. The loss of a child is always tragic.....

Here is what I suggest that perhaps can save you some money: If you have access to another Mac, you may be able to place the hard drive in a portable USB carrier and attach it to the working Mac. It's possible the drive has not been damaged and the photo files can be moved from the hard drive to the working Mac where you can further store them on DVDs.

If you send or take the drive to drive savers depending on the size of it, it may cost hundreds of dollars to recover the photos. I guess if it comes to that you will need to make a decision.

The best of luck with the recovering of the photos and keep us informed.
