I read this today in an advice column. I am wondering what you think she should do...
"I was given the job of cleaning out the office of a colleague who died suddenly and unexpectedly. I came across very affectionate letters from a man who was not her husband. I can't bring this up to other co-workers, and I can't send them to her husband like the other notes and cards I've found. I think I should shred them, but I can't bring myself to do it. I keep imagining this man out there mourning in secret because she's gone. I'm tempted to mail them all to him, but not knowing who might intercept them on his end stops me. They're in a pile on my desk now and I don't know what to do."
I will post the columnist's reply after I pick my son up from school.

Wow, that is a tough one. I would try to contact the other man first and ask him if he wants them.
