mccqueen Posted October 6, 2008 Report Share Posted October 6, 2008 My oldest brother died when he was three (before I was born) and a neighbor had a cedar chest made with his name on it for my parents. There are clothes and toys of his in it plus those of my grandfather and father. My mother has asked me and my daughter after that to take 'care' of the chest. My thoughts are how long do we have to hang on to this. I explained to her that this was HER grief and not mine and certainly not my daughters and she said just don't tell her what I am going to do with the chest. I, of course, would not do anything with it until she dies. I need some opinions or if anything like this has happened to anyone else. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
