    Is this proper english?

    Hello everyone. My first post here.

    Is this a proper sentence: "Every memory of him feels like one too many."

    Meaning, "I wouldn't want to remember him at all."

    Hi, Ville, and welcome to the board.

    It's grammatical English, but not idiomatic.

    I would not have understood it if you had not explained what you meant by it.
