Thank you very much Luise, I will try and follow your advice.

I'm very sorry for your loss, Evalyn.  Since it was fairly recent, you are going through a vulnerable and emotional time.  I imagine your DDs are sorting things out emotionally also.  Please be kind to yourself as you move through your grief and be around people who are supportive.  SS may have taken some things belonging to DH, but you have the memories and lasting richness of your relationship with DH that SS forfeited while DH was alive.

Thank you, do you think maybe, I was focusing on the loss of the gold bracelet, because I haven't been able to face the enormity of losing my DH? We were so close, since he retired 10 years ago, we were together much of the time.
Time for me to brave and adjust to my new life. At least I have a home and my little dog. A new great grandchild on the way, I heard yesterday. My GD is keen to involve me in her Christmas celebrations. I have much to be thankful for. Coming here has given me a different outlook on things. Many thanks. :)

Good for you, E.! It sounds like you may feel complete with this thread, do you want to close it?
