Thanks to both of you for your thoughtful replies! The loss of my wife's father was very difficult - he was one of the best friends I'll ever have and it's not often you get to say that about your father-in-law! I am grateful for the time we had together.

I did contact Alan at KEH - it turns out that they are located only about 50 miles away (the other side of Atlanta from me) so that might end up being the best option. I have a VERY marginal idea of what some of the equipment is worth from researching here, Ebay and some other sites. It looks like it varies widely so I'm still a little stuck on values.
I do sell things on Ebay from time to time but I always feel that it's a major hassle, especially with piecing things out. At the same time I feel that I would not do well on Ebay selling it all as a lot.
I think that I will wait to see what KEH comes back with and then go from there. I liked the idea of donating it to a high school. I actually teach part-time in the arts department of a high school and know the photography teacher quite well. Depending on the KEH offer I may heavily consider donating it.
Thanks again for your kind words and your help..
