It is a couple of weeks after the funeral of your spouse. Relatives have gone home, the kids may be back at school or gone back to their own homes, friends aren't stopping by that often, and you are feeling very sad and alone. Every time you open the closet to choose your clothing for the day, you are confronted with your dead spouse's array of clothing. You can hardly look at the clothes, for they bring back the painful memory that they will not be worn again by your loved one.
Watch the video for suggestions on how to handle this difficult task.
Consider these two alternatives to disposing of your lost loved one's clothing. Aileen Sheehan, a master seamstress who resides in Lake George, New York, has discovered a wonderful way to have a little piece of your loved one in your life every day.
