[tw: death]

As I mentioned in the Friday drink thread, my grandmother passed away yesterday. I am upset but still functional. At this point, I want to help out my mom and her siblings as much as possible as I know they are hurting very much.

I will be heading to my grandmother’s later in the week to help box up her things and clean up her apartment at the retirement community. For those of you who have gone through this, can you please provide advice on how to do so that is both respectful to my mom and her siblings over their loss but also practical? We have to figure out what to do with her stuff, possibly selling stuff, etc. She has soooo much stuff!!!

I have never done this before so please, feel free to include elementary level advice, too.

Many, many thanks to the GT community in advance!
