After someone dies, surviving loved ones are often tasked with sorting through their belongings.  People often put quite a lot of thought into decisions relating to when and how they complete this job.  That is unless variables beyond their control are forcing them to move at a quicker pace than they might like.

Regardless of how this process is approached – alone or with family/friends, right after the death or years later, over the course of one weekend or one month – it can emotionally challenging and exhausting.  Such a large task may seem overwhelming and objects big and small can trigger a wide range of emotions, from nostalgia and laughter to tears, longing, and frustration.
