    This may have been commented on already, hard to keep up on, but I hope that arrangements have been made to look after the research papers, notes, letters, etc, of Ray Franz. Preservation of his office/works is pretty important, in my opinion. When reading the tributes to Ray on Randy's site, Barbara Anderson described Ray's home and office and it just got me thinking..

    Also are there arrangements for someone else to take on the work of keeping CofC and ISofCF in print?

    I do believe there was a post saying that Ray's will had arrangments to handle this, that someone will be handling it. There is a post from yesterday but I can't access it.

    Information regarding Ray Franz's will. It will make your heart ...

    Jun 7, 2010 ... New information regarding Ray Franz's will is that it allows for very clear continuation of Commentary Press and the named Beneficiaries ...

    There has been no new information released regarding Ray's Will. I believe that thread was deleted.

    I had the same thoughts and questions, watson and slimboyfat. Somebody will need to do the actual work to keep those books in print.

    And I was hoping that someone could write the next book that Ray wanted to write but didn't have the energy for. Using Ray's notes, emails,letters.

    It would need to be someone relatively young and in good heath.

    I hope we hear some more.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to drag out a deleted post. I'm sure that Ray knew he needed someone reliable, and cable to carry on his writings and made arrangements fitting of the man that wrote Crisis of Conscience. It does prove that things die hard on the internet.

    I wonder if someone would put them on Lulu.com or something like that? They could pretty much go on forever that way and his family or estate might even be able to make a little off the sales.

    I am sure that there are some very important historical notes, experiences, correspondence, stories, etc. Some of it may be sensitive, but hopefully there will be help for his loving wife in organizing his body of work.
