Walt and Ellen Bellm Possessions at Auction
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,  A question was asked about the condition of Walter and
Ellen Bellm.  I received the auction catalog today.  In the catalog
introduction Ellen writes:

  "Dear Friends,

  "Many of you know that in August 2007 Walt had a massive stroke that
paralyzed the entire left side of his body.  He was in the hospital one
month and since then has been in rehab at the Woods of Manatee Springs,
Bradenton [Florida].  With assistance, he is beginning to walk but
progress is slow.

  "With Walt at 88 years old and I nearly 85, the time has come for us
to sell our home and collectibles and move somewhere where we can get
assistance. ...

  "Thanks for your friendship and memories.  Peace, Ellen"
