I in no way mean to be morbid or a bummer. I've seen this question go around in other doll-collecting communities. I was curious to ask the community here after being inspired by another thread questioning the provenance of some dolls on an auction site. Weather it's in a formal will or a casual request to your loved ones, have you taken into consideration what you would like to happen to your dolls when you pass? I've asked myself the same question recently, as my health hasn't been so great (I hope it improves, don't panic). I'm sure my friends would find some comfort in having a part of my collection if/when I do pass. I know my bf is quite attached to a couple of my dolls because he says they are so much of what he sees in me. I would want him to have them. My mother says mean things to me about my dolls, so I wouldn't want her to have any of them.
