Hello family my name is Norman McDonald Jr., Mr. Harvey Collins Sr. was a second father to me along with his lovely wife Mrs. Rose Collins as my second mother. I've known the family for 31 years, through my brother,cousin and best friend Harvey Collins Jr. I too just lost my father on Feb.14 2017 and the support of the Collins family gave me faith to continue on with life. Hearing the passing of Mr. Collins Sr. let me know he's up there with my father keeping an eye on Scoot and I. My family and I would like to send our deepest condolences to the Collins family and may God bless them.
