Mr. Collins was a very nice spirited man when I met him. Rashad took me over to the house to meet his Grandma and Grandpa. And we sat and talked outside for hours about everything that day. He was a kind but yet militant man that loved his family. And anyone else who loved them also! I’m so glad I had the pleasure of meeting with an Angel 😇
