When my brother passed away last November we all scattered his ashes within a couple of weeks, but my Mom said she was sick and could not go. I am still holding some of his ashes for her, but she has yet to mention it. She has also not called the medical examiner to get his toxicology reports, so I will have to do it this week because I need some closure. I have a feeling that she is avoiding doing these things because it will be more real to her and all she wants to do is pretend it didn't happened. When my oldest brother passed away three years ago she did a lot better and scattered the ashes and everything. Anyway, the question is, should I ask her about the ashes and if she wants some or just let it be?
