It has taken me a year and a half to grasp Paul being gone. Paul was one of the sweetest men I had ever known. He raised my brother and I and never complained a day in his life. I've seen this man be sick as a dog and still get up every morning and go to work. He was like my Dad and raised me as such. He was stern as a grizzly but soft as a lamb and for that he will forever be my Daddy. I miss you everyday. Love you....until we meet again <3

To Mr. Collins Family I met Mr. Collins several years ago with him driving his cars. And had stopped a few times and talked to him. We lived on New Hope Rd above Mr & Mrs Johnson and he stopped by our house a few times. He was a great person and I'll miss him your Family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time.
