Sad day

I packed up almost all of my Mom's day-to-day clothes and all of her shoes today. We're giving them away. I hope someone who really needs them gets them. She had such nice things. She always dressed well. I'm so sad to get rid of them... it's so hard. I wish I could keep it all.

  3. Samantha, he is doing about as well as to be expected. I KNOW he has to be lonely. Even though they didn't have the best marriage, still they were in the same house for almost 40 years. He goes out to eat by himself a lot, which makes me feel lonely for him. I KNOW he must have hard days too, but he isn't the type to let on that he is not handling things well. He talks about my mom and how it doesn't make sense all the time. Thanks for asking about him.

  4. The hardest thing to get rid of is their mobile number in the phone's address book.

    It's been two years since my brothers and niece died and I still can't delete those numbers.
