Grandmother Collins, as I knew her, was my adopted grandmother. She had a hugh heart and was loved by everyone who met her. I looked forward to visiting every chance I got and was always welcome to her home. She was family and know now that she is at peace and reunited with family. Thank you for all the love and care that you gave to me.

My heart is so heavy today because I just heard of the loss of a wonderful woman who sence I was a 5 year old girl thought of as the grandmothers I never got to meet. I loved her as if she was my own and I was so blessed and honored each time I saw her. She will forever hold a peace of my heart. Love you and fly high with the Angel’s.
