Thoughts & Prayers

Dear Colin Clan,
We're so proud to've gotten to know " Dad" in his last years. We were very fond of him..partly because we had compatible sense and sensibilities ...and we got one another's jokes. His zest for life was an inspiration and his accomplishments impressive. He loved his God and his family as much as he loved life...and when it was time to go, he was ready for the rest in the arms of the Lord.
We send you all much love, Jack and Beth Witham xoxo
