@Mr. Humphreys your first post... thank you for even considering me. Having had to undertake this, due to the loss of a parent, I do understand both the sentiment and the task. It does make you contemplate these things. In spite of being the originator of the post above, I have only scratched the surface of populating my personal database. As has been said on this thread, my collection still gives me a lot of pleasure and the ideal would be for it to move in whole, or in part, to people, or persons, that it has the same effect on. Part of what I had to deal with was a smallish collection. It was not bequeathed to anyone in particular, so I did my best to place pieces with people whom I hoped they would have meaning to... unfortunately, they weren't to many people's taste and I go to a stage where I had many pieces left and no remaining family members, or friends of the deceased, to offer them to; therefore, what seemed to make the most sense was to find a way to donate them to a charity relevant to the passing of the deceased. I did consider selling the pieces individually but that felt wrong; however, donating them to be sold and the funds benefiting the charity seemed slightly better. All in all a bit of an emotional mine field and certainly one that made me want to avoid leaving a similar issue for someone else.
