Dear Suzanne: I usually do not do this but I know how you feel. I have lost my mother to adult dementia so her body is alive but her mind is dead. I had to clean out her whole house and you can't figure some of the stuff she kept but because is still alive I have the hardest time getting rid of her stuff because it is her stuff.



I know how you feel. I lost the grandmother who raised me in 2000. I shared the task of going through her things. For a long long time I could not go back to her home after she died. It made me cry too much. And now it has been torn down and the only thing that remains is the peice of land and a few trees and flowers. I have my memories of her. And I feel that she is still with me at times.
