Gosh, I hardly know what to say. You share a profound experience in comparison to my clutter and nonsense. I remember the first time I was so struck by the tragedy that can be embodied in objects, it was when I was working at my first hospital job as a nursing assistant and experienced the death of a patient for the first time, all that was left were her slippers, her soap, a comb, nightdresses. It gave me such a strange feeling. Then when the objects belong to someone you know, it's a whole different experience, we've been sifting through my grandmothers house, she died at Christmas. All these little things that meant someone to someone we love. You shouldn't have had to go through this with your wife though, so young. It must be incredibly painful. I wonder if over time in such a situation the objects might remind you of a life well lived, that she was so curious and interested in everything and that she appreciated it all. Objects can be a real comfort too at times but ultimately they always make me a bit sad. I'm just very sorry for what you are going through. I hope you have a good support and look after yourself.thank you for reading my journal and leaving a message that made me think and feel.
