Chucking stuff

Hello everyone, I’ve started throwing away my husband’s stuff. It’s not easy as my husband ‘collected’ lots of stuff that was important to him. And he spent a lot of time writing itinaries etc for everything he did. I feel as if I’m throwing his life away even though these things have been gathering dust for years. He never threw anything away. Which was considered a fire hazard when the fire people came to help get him.out of the house after he had his accident. I know I have to get rid of it but it seems so awful and I feel terrible. His best friend us staying with me at the moment and I know he found it hard as some of the items realetd to things they did together. He has been a great comfort to me and is spurring me on to get things done. Which is a good thing.
