Collier's often wonderfully humorous communications on political matters have become in recent years a cherished part of our lives. My wife Ony McElroy, who reads our incoming e-mails first, would often call out to me from her office next to mine, "Here's another one from Collier!" And I would always get up and go read it because of the expectation that it would make me laugh, sometimes hilariously. Iwill so much miss those weekly communiques which have become part of our lives. It seems awfully strange that there will be no more of them. We mourn the loss of such a good and intelligent person. Collier's glowing smile was the same the last time we saw him and his lovely Gail, of whom he was so proud and grateful,here in Tucson as it was the day we graduated from Princeton together in 1956. I hope to be in his presence once more, some day. John McElroy.
Everyweek I looked forward to hear from
Collier and think that behind his message was his wonderful smile. His last e-mail included his pictures from the town in Mexico that he and Gail liked so much. We were hoping to make that trip with him and Gail. However, he is now looking at all of his friends again with a smile. Bless him! Ony McElroy
