Frye, the long-time historian of the B&M Railroad Historical
Society. Harry lived downriver from me, and when he died, it was
without a will and without any (or few) close relatives. As a
result, his collection is being dispersed.
Not to be too morbid here, but:
o Do you have a will?
o If so, does it specify the disposition of your railroadiana?
o If so, have you specified someone to handle the task in case your
executor/trix cannot/will not do it.
o If you do not have a will, why not?
We all hear horror stories about the end of railroad collections.
Harry's is a real life one.
