I think I posted this before but I love my father's old shirts. I have 3 of them - all short sleeve, one white, one light blue, one medium blue - and they're very old as he died in the 1980's, but I wear them around the house and still feel him. When my uncle died, I also asked for an old shirt of his, which I still have. Sometimes it is these small things.
I still have the handful of change I found in the pocket of my father's jeans! It's all in my jewelry box, even though it's probably not more than a dollar or so in value to anyone else!
I have many things of my parents, since I'm an only child. And when my mother died and I cleaned out the house I grew up in, it was amazing the little things I wanted to keep. Not always worth much to anyone, but a treasure to me!
Oh, I'm glad I wasn't the only one having trouble signing on last night!
