  1. Love this picture of Collin. I’ll never forget coming over to the Stafford’s house on Cedar street when we were little, and the three Parish girls racing the three Stafford boys in the front yard. I last spoke to Collin at Mom and Dad’s house, and he had brought his sweet buddy, Bella, along. My heart i s with Carroll, Lucy, Charlie, Joe, and the rest of the Stafford family today. Love y’all.

  2. Sincere condolences to your family. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God provide the necessary peace and comfort to your family and friends during this difficult time. Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” —John 11:20-25.
