When my grandmother passed, Daddy gave me her silver. I was the only of the four grandchildren with a family already and I did not have a complete real silverware set. It’s beautiful. She had this greenish box they are kept in. Everything matches!
Sometimes I wonder what I will pass down to my girls. I have three girls. Should I give something to them before I pass? Should I will it to them? Should I let them fight it out when I’m gone? How will they decide who gets what?
