My husbands possessions
what do I do with them? Oh I know there will be a few things that the kids and myself will want to keep, but what about everything else? How do you eradicate the presence of a loved one from your home/life? What do you do with the personal items, like clothes and toiletries, wallet? Throwing them away seems somehow wrong, but it seems just as wrong or at best, weird to leave them all where they are. I’m getting tired of the stab of pain that slices through me when I accidentally open his bathroom drawer looking for those elusive nail clippers, or opening his closet and seeing all his clothes hanging there. His shoes are still by the front door, his jackets hanging in the closet. The books he was reading, and his Bible, are still on his night stand. I’ve moved his special coffee cup to the back of the cabinet, seeing it every morning is just too painful. What about our wedding rings..what on earth do I do with those? If I get rid of this stuff will it seem like he was never here?
In all the books I’ve read on grief not one of them has mentioned what to do with your loved ones things.
