Description
Selling the Estate of a friend, Marvin Rowland. Marvin was gifted with wood crafting and creating items for his family and friends. Many precious stories are involved with these items, held tightly by his family and I am blessed to represent this family in the sell of Marvin's Collectibles. Words written by his daughter's: Written by Cheryl and Madelyn Meadows, Marvin and Doris Rowland's daughter's, and am sure approved by Doris Rowland. Such a sweet family, life is better by crossing their paths. "This Project began with my sister, Madelyn and I deciding it was time to De-Clutter Mother’s Basement. Mother (Doris A. Rowland) has always kept our home immaculate; however, when Daddy (Marvin C. Rowland) passed away in March 2005 and Mother was diagnosed with Osteopenia in May 2005, as a result of a broken femur bone, the Basement Living Area was not utilized on a Regular Basis. My sister and I would take items upstairs to mother and return them to the basement; however, we would just “put” them somewhere/anywhere rather than “place” them where they had been kept for many/many years. At a time like this there are Choices: Keep, Give Away, Sell or Throw Away. We were discussing a Yard Sale; however, our dear friend, Judith W. Hedgpeth recommended Russells Auction Firm. When she shared that you were the Owner, the decision was made without any further discussion. The reasons were: Daddy “loved” Yard Sales and Auctions & Daddy “loved” you --- you had assisted him in completing several projects with your talent of painting. It is difficult to sell family items; however, it is best for these items to be used and enjoyed by others than to remain stored. The memories can be captured in pictures and can remain in our hearts/minds forever. But, this is made easier when those involved know our loved ones and we can share stories, laughter and tears with one another while cleaning, organizing, packing, etc. There are Items on the On-line Auction that have been made by Daddy. These are Items you never take for granted; however, at a time like this we do stop for a moment to consider that once the Item is Gone, It is Gone. Daddy will never make another. The Value then is not based upon a Dollar; however, the Value is Priceless to those who knew, loved and cared for the person. Daddy shared that his passion for building items was based upon his childhood experience. Each summer his parents would give him and his brother (Eddie Rowland) Wood, Nails and a Hammer & they would build and unbuild items (bird houses, rabbit traps, etc.) until it was time to return to school. Most “all” items for Sale represent a special time, place, person and/or story. And, I have had the pleasure of sharing with those who have been assisting with the preparation of the On-Line Auction. Although, there are Over 600 Lots on the On-Line Auction, I am planning to prepare a Photo Album including pictures of some of the Items being sold so the memories will last forever." Marvin was a husband, father, friend to ALL, a humble man. We now are able to share some of his collections with the world, what a story is behind this adventure. Friends have dedicated hours for friends to make this happen. More here is at hand than what you see. I would like to thank the one's that have made this happen and our bidders for the support to have items from such a wonderful friend and family.. Items will be added weekly, so keep checking back with us.
