Ask John & Russell

Her possessions represent a tangible link to her and your memory of your life with her. (Published 5-22-2012)

Q:

My mom died in September, 2010, and it feels like it was yesterday. When will my hurting stop? I go in her room and can’t help to get in her bed and cry. I miss her so much. I wish she was still here. I don’t want anybody to move or get her stuff. I get very upset and hurt. Is this normal?
