I Need Advice/Opinions!

question-mark-460869_640My mother died in April of 2014.  My father died this past April.  My husband and I are living (temporarily) in their home while we go through the job of cleaning it out.

I know that I, along with others, have written about the struggle of deciding what to do with "stuff."  Some of the decisions have been easy, others.....not so much. Here is my current struggle: My mother was a wildlife photographer. She was very organized. There are TEN large file drawers of her slides, hanging in plastic slide holders. My husband and I will be moving when our work here is done. What do I do with those slides?! My siblings say I should just "get rid of them."cI'm finding that I just can't do that. Those slides are the culmination of thirty years of work. Of traveling to every continent (Antarctica four times!). My husband and I have decided to box them up and take them with us.

What would you do?
