My father-in-law, a delightful if annoying retired beaurocrat in his mid-seventies, 
has a saying that I love:  "remember, don't mistake honesty for cruelty!!"

I hope to God the rich TONS of the stuff...
as quickly as they did in the past decades.....and I'd just as 
soon prefer that they never use it....but that they store it properly (many don't)....

This way, if my daughter is interested in photography when she's older, there'll 
be plenty of cheap Leica gear, as there was when I was young.....

sincerely, your bottom-feeding-estate-sale-widow-grubbing leica friend, 
Walt in Denton

(BTW, when my wife and I die, you won't want our me....actually, 
hers may not hold up that least we'll "offend" the Leica collectors....)
