Iwilda, Kathy and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of your loss. In God’s Love,
Martha, my heart is broken. Jennie was like my sister growing up at Grandpa Bill’s house was one of my fondest memories of childhood. The Collins family each and everyone has a special place in my heart, but Pauline, Martha, Jennie, and Sam where like my big brother and sisters. My mom thought there was no one like each and everyone.
My prayers are with you Martha. I’m try to figure a way to make it to the funeral. I have a Doctor’s appointment Wednesday and physical therapy Thursday on my right arm. If I can’t make know my prayers are with you. I love you so much.
Love and prayers,
