So sorry to hear the news about Mrs. Collins, one of the nicest moms for all of us guys who grew up together. I will always remember how welcome she made us feel whenever we visited.

Matt - you and I have been good friends since 2nd grade. You and your family are woven throughout the fabric of my life, a true blessing. I am eternally grateful.
