My Cousins: Linda. Mike, Bobbie, Kathy, Drema, and Mary Collins; my love, prayers and many special thoughts are with all the family. Your Precious Dad, Loved One was always special to me. I loved my Uncle Tators and the happy family life stories he would share, especially when he and all of his siblings were young.
Had hoped to see and hug him again. But it wasn't meant to be.
My flight already schedule for Thursday morning. So my Sister & I will be there in the afternoon.
Pray for your peace and comfort.
