Monday, July 31, 2017My heartfelt condolences to John's family and his many close friends. John wrote beautifully on rugs and carpets and he was a great scholar on this subject. He was a true gentleman, kind and generous. I will miss his friendship. His passing is a true loss for the rug community he leaves behind.

Saturday, July 29, 2017To the Collins family , With sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one. Beautiful promises of hope and comfort are contained in God’s Word (2Corinthians 1:3) There exist no other source with more promises of comfort than the Holy Scriptures. As you reflect on the life of Mr. Collins remember his joys and blessings. I pray you are not too sad. Surround yourselves with those who loved him and share fond memories this too is a source of comfort.
