Osbornes Say Goodbye to Homes/Possessions



June 4, 2012

They were always known as one of Arkansas' richest families but soon{}all their homes and possessions will be auctioned off.

"I'm kinda at the point now I'm ready to move forward, let's do this, let's do what we have to do," said Breezy Osborne-Wingfield, the late Jennings Osborne's daughter.

Starting at 10am Wednesday morning, the house Breezy{}knew as home as a child will go on the auction block.

"We knew this could be a possibility one day but dad continued to persevere, kept working and wanted to see what he could do. He did that up until the moment he was hospitalized," said Breezy.

Jennings Osborne, a man known for his extravagant living and extreme giving, died last summer.

Soon after his wife, Mitzi, and daughter, Breezy were forced to come to terms with an enormous amount of debt that was left behind.

"The best way I can keep it in my heart is he wanted to keep doing what he knew he could do best," said Breezy. "Even if it wasn't there he wanted to find a way to make it happen."

Breezy says she plans to teach her own daughter, who is due in just a couple of months, that you can live a life of giving without spending a dollar.

And hopes this tough life lesson won't overshadow her father's legacy.

"If he could just be remembered for all the good things but also that it's okay to make mistakes because we're all human we all mess up but we all have to go through it and let the cards play out. So that's where we are," said Breezy.
