Yep, that's my job, keeping them fed. For the next few days too, we have friends alternating and bringing us dinner, so that was very kind of them.
(nobody is in the mood to go out, or cook, etc.).
I've actually lost two grandparents within the last couple of years, so no stranger to loss lately. We had to go through the pics for the slide-show
during the service, and clothes for what she'd be wearing in her casket..but yeah, there are no plans to look at other things anytime soon. I know
Wendy will want some mementos, but really the furthest thing in our minds at present. Also had to select music, etc. so that was an emotional trip for
Money-wise, we assume everything will go to her partner of so many years (and she'll need it with the loss of income). They never hurt financially,
or so we saw...but no telling what the situation is now, especially as unlike a spouse, her partner won't continue to get any kind of benefits,
disability, etc. That's another worry for down the road...what she'll end up doing, and how she'll get by etc.
For me though, my wife is my primary concern.
