Remember the estate sale happening at my parents home?
Well, even with the 10 ft. U-Haul trailer of belongings I brought home to Colorado, there were still over 2,000 items that were sold at the estate sale.
The final numbers are in...the total sales from 4 preview sales and one big public sale day, amounted to $6,766.30!
After the estate sale gal's commission, that brought us a little over $4,000 for the "Apple Tree Scholarship Fund!" We were pleased with these numbers as this allows us to keep the scholarship fund alive for a few more years, thus keeping my parents memories alive in the community as well. I know the children who will benefit from the scholarship recipients are exactly what would have pleased my parents most!
The house is now up for sale, and it does feel strange to think that soon everything will be gone...my parents are gone, their things are gone, and soon their house will be gone...although I know they will never be gone from my heart, selling everything does bring a sense of finality that is difficult. But more on that later as we have company arriving today and sadness will have to wait.
Just an upate as you were all so kind to inquire and follow our story from beginning to end. Remember to live today fully, and appreciate all the people you love!
