The picture is a wonderful celebration of life.
It can be sad to see a lifetime's worth of possessions reduced to a few cardboard boxes. When my in laws died, their children sat around helpless, but the job had to be done, so I did it as they watched. Not one of them wanted any of the day to day things, dishes glasses or linens, yet how many times had they been entertained to a meal using those very things? I didn't need them, but I took them, and some have been used and mulled over and passed on, all part of my grieving process.
Glad you are feeling better. xx
