Attempting to live a better story ... and scrapbooking it.
Put them in a shoe box and go through them when you're ready xxx
I agree with Liz. If they are labelled well, you can put them in date order in a box and look at them a few at a time when you feel you have the strength to do it. Maybe get some of those slip in photo albums so you can keep them a year in a book. Then it will be easier to decide what to do with them.
It can all wait for the day you will know that you need to go through them.
My Dad died in 2003 and my Mum in 2006. I am just beginning to scrapbook the pictures and memorabilia they kept. I can do a few pages then I have to leave it as the ache is too much sometimes.I think eventually I will suggest to my family that I copy those pictures that they want and then put the rest into albums and put them into the local records office/archives.My Dad ran a business and that is part of local history
A very poignant photo ... I wasn't sure if it was a rhetorical question. If not, perhaps do nothing for a while until you feel more clear. There's no rush, is there ...
Given that we have two boxes filled with every sermon my FIL ever gave, still sitting in the attic here, I'm not the person to help. But I think don't rush is very good advice.
