Went to NC to clean out and pack up mom and dad's house this past weekend. My sister-in-law, dad, brother and some great friends were there as well. We worked. laughed, cried and got it all packed up and cleaned out. 47 years worth of family life. Needless to say it was emotional. When I pulled out of the driveway for the last time I bawled like a baby. The house is now on the market and we have moved dad into a retirement community. My house is now full (literally floor to ceiling in my dining area) of boxes and furniture from mom and dad's house.

Lots of tears, but it was an important step to take. Not a happy one, but an important one.

It was one of the hardest things for me after losing my parents too. Eventually, I hope those floor to ceiling boxes bring you warm memories and smiles (hugs)

Hugs from here too Susan. Your Mom was one of my favorite people on here through you. Take your time and carefully choose what to keep and what to let go. I know I don't want my kids to think they have to hold on to everything when I'm gone.
