Sorry to hear about your husband, lost my grandpa to cancer...hate it.
I also love the idea of a museum, such an awesome idea and a way to honor his memory and passion in a way that many others can enjoy.

The items listed in your forum signature should be more than enough for the Museum to just set it up and go. (Quite an enviable list for any sim pilot).

I must get rid of this and I have no idea where to begin.
He truly loved this hobby and he would want all his "stuff" to be used not thrown away.
I would like to get a little something for it but it is most important that it goes to someone who will enjoy the hobby. Any advice for the easiest solution would be appreciated. Oh I should add we are located in central Arizona.
can you post here pictures of the things you wanna sell?
I can maybe give you advices what the different components are worth, not that someone cheats you and give you 5 bugs for something that is 200 worth.

ah and maybe a tip, depending on how the brain tumor currently affects his abilities, if he is still able to understand words and is on mind, maybe audiobooks are now something for him.

My father had in his last days a lot of joy with those.
