Brother just left...
November 28, 2017 7:04pm CST
My brother just left a minute or so ago. Today my brother and I went to the mortuary to make arrangements. Mom is going to be cremated like my Dad was. My brother pretty much let me choose most everything. He said he was "neutral" on that subject. He was digging around/cleaning in the house, for part of the time with the help of my sister in law. I've realized I don't need to keep half the things I thought I would. A lot of Mom's sewing decor type stuff, like beads and rick-rack and what-all, I can use with my ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). Maybe some of her fabric, too -- though I think my brother wants to donate the fabric somewhere or see if someone can use it otherwise. That's fine. My Mom had accumulated a ton of fabric that people have given her -- she often said she would probably never use it all -- and I'm sure I couldn't, either. I made some phone calls to places like Social Security and a couple of investment places where Mom had money. There are only a couple more to go--but I'm going to save those for tomorrow. I just realized that I probably posted a lot of this info in my last post, my apologies for the replay.

Just post what you need and we will listen. I do not see all of your posts, but I DO know what you are going through. I would say "yes, donate fabrics". Maybe you know some people who make clothes or gifts for Operation Christmas Child, or other Mission charities.
