    have left of them

    Hi

    My parents' house burned down a long time ago. Only thing left is the chimneystack. I oughta just knock it down, but I can't do it. I mean, it's really the only thing I have left of them.

    Does it mean it's the only thing which makes me remember them? Or which was left after them?

    The only thing that they owned that is still in his possession.
