I don't know how old I was when I finally did the math to realize we were not related to the Collins' family by blood, yet I will forever feel like a member. No better evidence than coming home with Rita and getting lovingly fussed at by Brendan on the couch. A man who simultaneously appeared strong and rigid, also had a tenderness that I will always remember. A man who loved his family tremendously and was a very proud Grandfather to his beautiful grandkids. My heart is heavy, not only with Brendan's passing, but with the knowledge of what an immense loss this is for Cathy, John, Danny & Rita. How lucky to have been blessed with such a loving and proud father. I hope your memories help you through this time- especially all of the laughter. I know I will forever think of him and be thankful for Brendan making me feel so much a part of his family. Love to all!

Brendan, a most faithful friend, you will be deeply missed. Save a good seat for me as we will have an awful lot of reminiscing to do when we get together again! My deepest sympathy to Cathy, John, Kathleen, Danny and Rita and their spouses and kids...... you are all a tribute to Brendan, and I know how much he loved you all! Love always, John and Marie
