Show Notes

Hanging on to the physical things our loved ones leave behind in grief is an odd subject. For a long time I couldn’t get rid of, or move anything of Molly’s. When I finally started to get rid of or donate items, it was a difficult journey. In this episode, I explore the power of items, the impact they have on us as people, and learning to let go.
