Michael,
That is a very generous gesture and a great tribute to your father. I'm sure many people, including myself, would be interested.

You might think of a museum that would want something of your Dad's, his friendship was enough for me.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing the day we caught news of my father's death, but I do think sharing his items with individuals could allow for a more personal touch for people to remember him.

Sure the tax write-offs would be nice for my mother, but I think spreading generosity in the aviation community will pay massive dividends over time, especially given how tight-knit it has proven numerous times.

I plan to share the Google Docs spreadsheet here after the last few stragglers message me what they want of the lot.

I'm on a trip out of St Joseph, MO and I drove down to Amelia Earhart Field today and spent a few minutes thinking about Vlado and Beverly.
They will always be on our minds.

Blue Skies to them,

Lynn

Moonbeam, Vlado's P-51 for 20+ years, is back in the states and ready to fly in his memory, To those going to Oshkosh, go by and say Hi to Moonbeam for me.

Michael,

Nothing will replace or bring back your dad.

But be assured, that he was highly esteemed and appreciated by many of us. I felt privileged to call him a friend.

Saludos,


Tulio
