Eleanor Collins

My stepson remains special in my heart. He was caring and loving just like his dad. He was smart and talented and could figure out ways to handle every obstacle put in his way. He adored his wife and children and all who walked in as friend. He was a great snow plow operator and loved visiting the family farm in Missouri to see his family there. My heart aches for Doreen and Jimmy, Erin, Charles III and Amy and Erin, And his dear Mom whom he was so close to. His Uncle Jim McCaslin and I send social hugs to all.
