My mom passed away on May 25th not even a month yet. My mom, myself, my children, and my boyfriend all lived together. We are still living at her house and her bedroom is still untouched except her bed is gone because the hospice brought their own. My aunt's and my grandmother and it seems like everyone keeps asking me if I need help cleaning out her room. I don't want to clean out her room yet. Her toothbrush, hairbrush, makeup, lotions, perfumes and of course all her clothes are still around as if she is still here. Is it wrong for me to just leave everything as it is? I don't think I'm in denial or anything but I just don't see the problem of keeping her clothes in her closet for a while longer. My family is starting to ask me everyday if I need help going through her stuff or they ask what will I do with her stuff. I know it's just stuff but I'm not ready to part with it. She was my best friend we were always together so every single item of hers has some sort of story or memory to me. What should I do?
