I found this article interesting for two reasons. One is that it gives us a bit of insight as to how it feels to leave your family home and its memories after so many years.
The other reason is that it shows a creative way of dealing with household possessions. In Mrs. Carruthers' case, some of her articles are going to a local museum. While this isn't an option for everyone, I hope that one or two families out there will realize that their family treasures might also be treasures to the community. Perhaps not everything needs to be sold, thrown away, or stored in someone's attic.
