Spent time with my sister this morning, sorting through Mom's jewelry: earrings and necklace for her, things for the older granddaughters and oldest great-granddaughter, costume jewelry for the younger great-greats, some interesting coin collections for the great-grandsons. Sister's got a lot of the family art (fewer bookshelves, though not for lack of reading!), which was nice to see again. We never got around to going through photos, with breaks for recollections and tears.
Oh, this isn't easy.
