Joy and Angie,

I was so sad to hear of Colin s passing, we had so much fun together as young boys, in high school and later in life! Although I hadn’t seen Colin in a while, I never forgot our times together, playing baseball in a field on 303 first street, or all the good times we had in High School.

Your in my prayers,

Paul
