Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Violet, Carol, and Kay,
    Alan and I are so sorry for your loss. I know we haven’t seen much of each other in recent years, but I will cherish fond memories of the family picnics and get-togethers at Grandmother and Granddaddy Collins’s home on Nix Road as we grew up.


  2. Mr. Carol Collins was a good friend of my Father, ‘Bud’ Barnwell. We visited he home often when I was a child. I feel like I know his children because he spoke so often of them. I am sorry to learn of the loss of Harold.
