Jan, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. My prayers will be with you and your family during this time.

So sorry for your loss. I remember Mike as a sweet, beautiful individual who always had a nice word and smile for everyone. Growing up he was admired and respected as the older brother and as a good example for his brothers and sisters to look up too. Prayers for all the family. Sincerely, Denise A. (Springer) Hansen

I'm very sorry for your loss. When I see Mr. Collins' picture, I see his sons.

I have fond memories of watching movies in the basement with Dave and Mr. Collins. He was a good man. You all are in my thoughts.
