 Noble Son

Loving and Devoted Husband

Dedicated Father

 Cherished Grandfather

Grandpa Collier passed away on December 30th, 2010. After living a good long life, his heart gave out. Thank you, Grandpa, for your great example of courage and devotion. Thank you for teaching your son to be trustworthy, faithful, and true. You can imagine how very much this means to me. Thank you for teaching me the importance of cherishing this choice land in which we live, the importance of taking care of my body and keeping it in tip-top shape, and the importance of keeping in touch with and staying close to those I love. And last but not least, for teaching me the importance of a goodbye kiss.

I kiss you goodbye now, Grandpa Collier
I will miss you.

May God be with you...

'til we meet again.
