Cherished Teddies denouement

After much investigating of options by Mom, my uncle's honorary son made a deal with the buyers of the house (which he also arranged) to throw in a few grand extra and keep (most of) the Cherished Teddies right where they are, presumably to sell off at market rates at their leisure.

My uncle's original intention was to leave the entire collection to "the nieces." I haven't asked the other two about it, but I was feeling slightly guilty about rejecting the notion, despite having no practical way to deal with over 900 adorable figurines. However, I am happy to accept half a dozen that either share my name or represent my interests.

So, in the end, everyone is happy. :-)
