“I once worked for the Housing Authority, managing several buildings one of which was a family property. One of the residents was a family of four. During their time at the apartments, the wife became sick and passed away. The husband and sons carried on living there for about two years before falling on hard times which resulted in nonpayment of rent and eviction. When the husband moved out, he took with him two suitcases. That was all.
Upon move-out inspection, I found he left everything. Furniture, clothing, his sons’ belongings, but most disturbing was he left all of his deceased wife’s things. Her glasses, jewelry, dentures, notes between the two, and most disturbing were her ashes. He just walked away. I don’t know about disgusting but certainly disturbing.”
