|Bill Collins was a stand up guy, always good company and a good friend. For a guy who thought
bar fights were fun, commercial jets too slow and with more flight hours and parachute jumps than
you can tally these days, it's seems paradoxical that he would chose a quiet cabin on a mountain to
retire to after all the action packed years. He loved it there and when it came time to stop flying it was
his family who helped him make that difficult transition. His family became his anchor and in his last
years his biggest concern was that they would all be alright.
He gives Marjorie the credit of course, but as talented, confident and capable as you all are I think
Bill can rest easy on that one. God Bless you all, many are heartbroken for you and with you.

|We knew Bill as an acupuncture patient. I'll never forget him cracking jokes shamelessly or talking about Sheba every time he came. We are reading Louis L'amore in his memory and had hoped to send him a Christmas card. We will save the Snoopy card. Bill will be a hard act to follow!|
