  1. So sorry to hear about Collin. I will always remember him from our days as WSO’s in the 111th FIG. He was a wonderful person to know. He will be missed.

  2. Collin’s passing is a loss for so many. I am sorry I was out of state for the service. I am so grateful to have had the chance to become his friend. I loved and admired him greatly. Freida and the family continue to be in my prayers.
