After a full day of sorting through box after box of what was left of the senior Macys’ earthly possessions after their children and grandchildren and even great-grandchildren had chosen what we/they wanted to keep, I snapped this one picture for a keepsake of my own. It will serve as a reminder about why it’s a good idea to release attachments to my own earthly possessions. How much stuff does it take to live comfortably? Who is going to want this or that after I’m gone?
Thankfully, one of the grandsons can wear both the hat and the boots!
The family tree will hang in Rachel’s home—eventually.
John took home the “Nobody’s Purfect” stitchery, remembering the stories of Howard and Mauri’s penchant for crookeding all the frames in their parents’ house.
John’s idea is good—record everything with the camera and then find new homes for all the tangible stuff.
