It has been a process and a journey as the four of us siblings have worked together to make decisions in settling the estate. We will always have our memories of happy times and events associated with the home place. It is sort of like reading a good book; it is always hard to finish the final chapter. But I am so thankful for the heritage we've had with loving, christian parents and for the harmony we have among our family members. I have come to realize that this is not true for so many families.
My sister Brenda has writtten a wonderful account about the sale, including photos. ( I had my camara, but didn't get very good pics.) After the sale, we were able to stop and wish a Happy Birthday to my Aunt Fannie (I think she turned 94 y/o) and visit with cousins for a few minutes, before going on to the Barn Restaurant to celebrate our sale.
