Hoard bloody paperwork?

Thought I had gone through and threw away ALL of Mum’s tedious paperwork. Nope! last thing I found, a box file crammed full of crap, reckon will keep 2-3 bits of paper might be of use to me.

Geeze!

Just going through some of my Dad's stuff this morning - actually found some good paperwork - such as his old passport, Certificate of Australian Citizenship, etc. - but mostly old phone bills and similar crap :)

Sorry to hear about your dad GP....I lost my mum as a boy and its tough...
Thanks for that.

As a boy, that must have been terrible for you. So sorry to hear that.

I was strangely upbeat yesterday - had fully accepted what had happened and was joking around and happy.

Today, I'm very down and depressed.

Tomorrow, I have to start filling out paperwork, notifying banks, etc. - hope I feel better by then.

My mother took her own life, it took her a day to succumb to her injuries in hospital, that was the worst time. once she had gone it was closure and felt like I could move on.

Sorry to hear that Jim.

My father inlaw did something similar. He tried on three seperate occassions jumping from his fourth floor balcony. One day my wife, who was maybe 11 or 12 at the time, came home and found him on the footpath with broken limbs and blood everywhere. He survived that time but my wife dreaded going home from school from that day on, for fear of what she might find. Then one day he hung himself instead. Luckily, it wasn't at home and she didn't find his corpse.

A niece lost her firstborn, a boy, to suicide last year. Was with her sister today—apparently the son was never happy, not even as a child. Weird.
