I am trying to catch up - why is it being emptied? Just a move I hope.

Have a great week my friend!

These photos I remember me the new Paul Auster's book "Sunset Park"

Bill: my mother passed away two years ago, one year and a half after my father's passing away. The house has been empty since she's gone. Now my brother and I are selling the house to my daughter and her partner. So it will stay in the family.

I vaguely remember these losses.

It is great that it will stay in the family.

Grimp...it is a very difficult thing to do....not too many years ago I had the same task and nothing makes it easy.....I always believed that the memory of ones life assures eternity.....so sorry for your loss...........

This reminds me the emptying, 10 years ago, of the appartment of my aunt with whom I lived during 6 years in my adolescence. A very special feeling indeed...........

Fantastic that young people of your family will live there !!

Yes, tomorrow will be the great where they will become the proud owners.
Though there is still a lot of work to do. Like fitting a new heating, changing water, electricity and gas. Then there's the painting, furnishing and so on. But my daughter she's a kind of energy loaded person...
