Relatives consider moving her stuff…..

by Rod Smith

“My sister-in-law died two years ago and her husband is still grieving for her. He continues going to work everyday and is slowing starting to pick up his life. However, he has not yet disposed of her personal items. Some other relatives feel that he should have done so by now and they may be considering doing it themselves. I do not agree with them. Two years is not a long time. Please comment.”

Leave the man to do what he needs to do, and to do it in his own time. Of course meddling relatives ought to be persuaded to mind their own business, and to leave him and the belongings of the deceased alone.
