It has been a week sense he passed and I just don't know what to do with myself. I am going to BIL and SIL's tonight for dinner. DD loves to play with her cousins. MIL had me over with the kids last night for dinner. I am still making 100's of phone calls, trying to get the credit cards and everything straightened out. You hear about identy theft and all of that.
I went to the morturary yesterday and picked up the death certificates. Pieces of paper in a manilla envelope, I also have our marrage certificates and birth cirtificates in the same.
In sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, for better and for worse, as long as you both shall live....... Boy did we do all that, I was just expecting it to last longer than 12 years
I'm just not sure what to do now. It hurts to look at all his clothes in the closet, I'm not sure if it would hurt more to look at an empty closet. A friend of his family's was at the service. James and her son were in band together in high school. They grew up down the street from each other.... Anyway she offered to make a quilt out of his old tee shirts if I wanted, we went to lots of concerts, and lots of trips to Lake Powell over the years. I was just planing on wearing them until they wore out, but I like the idea of a quilt. Hopefuly that way they won't wear out as fast, I can keep a part of him with me longer.
Can I ask how long some of you waited to "empty" the closet and dressers? I was going to have his brothers do it with me, that way I don't have to do it by myself, and also if there is something they want, I would rather it go to them than the Good Will. Keep it in the family. KWIM?
