Our Hollies collections after passing. Jan 1, 2020 8:15:02 GMT

This is an interesting question and I am curious as to how the really serious collectors of Hollies music have arranged for their collection after they have passed.
I am reaching an older age and with my younger brother passing in the last six months (I did inherit more than a 1000 CDs from him "not Hollies") it has got me wondering how to deal with my collection now or what will happen to it after I pass. My family have virtually no interest in music let alone The Hollies music and my collection. I have been collection Hollies recordings since the middle 60s but most certainly by the mid 70s I was more serious and started collecting 45s, EPs. LPs and CDs (upon their arrival early 80s). My collection is not anything like say for example Knut's and several others that are also on The Hollies facebook group. Most certainly since say about 2000 I virtually stopped collecting vinyl and just concentrated on CDs. I have now gotten to the stage that unless the new release is really interesting with new stuff on it I don't purchase it any longer. Who needs 50+ versions of almost all the Hollies hits. Not I.
As I mentioned on a post in the RIP Kenny Lynch topic I have started to and almost finished moving all my physical material onto the digital medium in a FLAC file that is lossless. That allows me easy access to the music.
All my 45s and EPs have been stored in the garage for upwards of 20 years protected as best as I can but they are still subjected to the Heat and Cold. I am guessing it would be great to be able to move them on before I go or just about certainly they would be lost to the world.
I loved the idea of having a physical item that I could hold and admire/look at the artwork. Now I virtually don't touch any of it with my digital network within the house giving me easy access to basically any item that I have in the collection.
I am interested in others thoughts.
