This Has Me Heartbroken
My husband Mike died in November. Up until recently our 2 sons have pulled together and been getting along just fine.

A couple of months ago the fighting over material stuff started. They are acting like crazy over the things like tools ect. It's so ridiculous and totally new territory for me. We have always been close knit. I don't know if this is just a way they are dealing with the grief or what but I really don't like it!

Prayers greatly appreciated!

Me either...no experience with this sort of thing. I'm thinking it's all part of the grieving process and they are trying to hold onto their father anyway they can. I'm hoping that "This too shall pass" and they will return to being the loving brothers that they have been.

Sorry, you are dealing with this.
Talk to them and tell them it's hurtful to you. And is not honoring their dads legacy by acting the way they are.
Though there was no fighting between my 3 older sisters and I when my father died, we divided items (like my dad's jewelry he made) by numbering them 1 - 4 and then drawing numbers on a slip of paper from a bowl.
