Royce Humphrey Estate To Be Auctioned, My Family Home To Be Sold June 2nd
My Dad and Mom’s home and wooded land in Hancock, Wisconsin will be up for an estate auction on Saturday June 2nd starting at 10:00 A.M. Following the sale of the land personal property will be auctioned. A copy of the sale is at the bottom of this blog post.
My photos from summer 2010.
This past year has been an emotional one with the death of my Dad, a special uncle, and also the passing of my mother-in-law, Marion Wilson. James and I are reminded that God does not give us more than we can shoulder, but I would not be not totally candid if I did not admit to questioning that at times.
I keep reminding myself of something Dad told me when I was a teenager, and mentioned several times to me as an adult. In fact I mentioned the advice the second to last time we spoke in March 2011, as a mighty fog rolled over the front lawn of the home place while we looked out from the living room windows. This time, however, I was the one passing the wisdom back to Dad.
Dad would hold his hands as if on a steering wheel, (and in early years would bounce around as if in a jostling truck) and then use the analogy of a snow truck driver when telling me how to handle the rough times of life.
“Hold on tight to the wheel, drop the blade, and go straight down the road.”
So I did.
Here is a sample of how Mom’s kitchen looked in the home.
