In Loving Memory of
Dad today is Father's Day. The family said goodbye to you on May 25, 2020. We miss you terribly. Not a day goes by without thinking of you, seeing you and hearing your voice and your laugh.
My brothers and I were so incredibly lucky to have the Father we did. I want to thank my Father for all that he did for us and for the great man he was. I want to wish him a Happy Father's Day, even if he's in Heaven.
A few fond memories of my Dad, Mr. Hank Coll - You stood strong and proud of your political views. You always taught me the importance of thinking of others and to never ever forget our war veteran's. You taught me that Actions speak louder than Words. Your commitment as a great husband to Mom. Your Blessed marriage of 60 years. I can still see you together sitting on the deck under the setting sun with your brandy and waters.
You and Mom worked so hard to give our family a wonderful life filled with love and respect for one another. You showed us how hard work and sacrifice pays off.
Dad, someday I will swing my driver like you- Fast, Straight and Powerful.
I will always remember you saying to me "Come over any time Cath, you know you're always welcome"
Dad, I remember how you always made time for us kids. You listened. You were interested and you truly cared.
For your resilient commitment to the Catholic Church, Ave Maria Parish, the Rosary and of course your favorite
St. Padre Pio.
Dad, I want to thank you for being such a great example for Men and Fathers. I am so proud to have been your daughter. You will always be my hero and my mentor. Watching someone you love so much your whole life suffer with illness and pain is unimaginable. At times you have no choice but to say goodbye.
May God Bless you and Protect You with his Love. Happy Father's Day.
