Hello everyone. I’m writing this in need of
Some help. My mother has always been a life long fan of windstones since I can remember. She only had a couple while I was growing up but she has grow a collection over the recent years. I’m very sad to say she has passed away august 23rd due to a car accident. We do not plan to sell her collection, as these were pride and joy. She would love to trade with people on Facebook and she would always look on here for the next piece. She loved and appreciated the craft these statues provided. Some of you may have even interacted with her. Her name is Melissa lockhoff. If anyone can reach out to me under my email I can provide pictures of all she has(it’s a lot)
Like I said we do not want to sell anything. But with troubling times we may have to in the near future. Melissa wishes you all love and we will miss her. Bless you all.

I never personally had any interactions with her but l wish you and your family peace and healing.
You could, if you wanted to of course, add photos here in the forums of her collection.

sorry for your loss….not sure if I interacted with Melissa, do you know her forum name?
as Stormdancer said, you can post pictures here, just go to the attachments area when you scroll a little bit more down under the posting area….I’d love to see any pictures, I love seeing what people collected and how they decided what they wanted to collect and not collect……

So very sorry for your loss, but I do think only sending pictures privately is the best thing at the moment. People can be very crazy over pieces and I don’t think that’s something you’d want to deal with at the moment. Definitely take your time with it.September 3, 2023 at 6:09 pm #1674975SarasShiniesParticipant
I am more than sadden to hear this news. Melissa was one of the absolute sweetest collectors. She once sent me a flap cat I needed for a surprise. She had a huge heart and loving nature. I hope somehow you find piece knowing what a great human being she was. One of the good ones for sure.

So sorry to hear this… I saw the news on her Facebook a few days ago. My deepest condolences to you and the rest of the family. It is a tragic loss to the community and to the world in general. She and I had similar views on controversial subjects which made for fun banter. She had a very good reputation in the Windstone community and it will be a little more hollow without her in it.
If you ever need to reach out with questions/concerns I am one of the Official Facebook Group Moderators and primary feedback coordinator. I am Mandy Richardi on Facebook. It can be daunting to list items for a loved one if it has to come down to it. Please feel free to reach out to me any time via Messenger or my email is in my signature.

I am so sorry to hear this news. I traded and bought and sold things with Melissa. We always had nice chats. She was a lovely person.
Always looking for a lovely GB Young Unicorns, TP Male Dragons or TP Male Griffins!September 13, 2023 at 2:42 pm #1675211ShiarahParticipant
Oh my gosh! I am SO sorry to hear this! I traded with Melissa once via the Facebook group, she was so sweet. My condolences. May her collection bring you peace in her memory.September 13, 2023 at 2:55 pm #1675212ScathachParticipant
I’m very sad to hear this. We spoke on Facebook.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I don’t believe we interacted but there’s nothing in life more painful than losing a loved one. I hope that you and yours will have all the time and space that you need right now to be with your grief.
Regarding her collection and pictures of it, I think I agree with frozendragon. I think most people here are just genuinely curious and would be respectful of your wishes. But I do know that there have been instances of people pressuring others’ to sell when they didn’t want to — perhaps unintentionally, I’m not sure. I would hate for that to happen to you all.
If it ever does come to a point that you do decide you want to part with some of her pieces, I would select the ones you feel confident in selling and only those to picture and post either here and/or on the Facebook group. Also, if you need appraisal because you’re not sure what prices that would be appropriate, I would recommend emailing Susie here at Windstone. She would be an unbiased party and I’m sure she would be happy to help you.
