    My thoughts & prayers go out to all of you. I always enjoyed visiting, & reminiscing, about days gone by. Both of your parents made me feel at home & part of your family, which will be sadly missed but will always be near, dear to my heart & never forgotten.

    Dear Collins’ family,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Both your parents were kind people. They were special neighbors to my parents, Dick and Doris Hollis. Please know that my sisters and I are thinking about you at this time. May God bless you and yours with loving, wonderful memories!

    I will miss my ” little” sister so very much. We were always close growing up and remained close in our adult lives. She and Charlie and Raymond and I used to enjoy taking trips to Tn. and Ky. when we were younger – wonderful memories. I love her dearly and will always keep a special place in my heart for her until we meet again in heaven.

    You all know how much I will miss my special aunt. So glad that we got to spend so much time together the last few years – our trips card-shopping and lunches in her apartment watching The Young and Restless were so much fun. Know that she was not happy with her present situation and I truly believe that she was ready to go to her reward. Good for her but so very sad for those of us who will miss her. My love goes out to all of you.
