Colin was such a gentleman who always had a beaming smile and twinkly eyes .He will be lovingly remembered.
I was so glad to get to call in last week and tell him how special he was and we shed a wee tear together.
My sympathy to Betty....you were the best spouse, so caring and competent and I know your lovely family will be there for you as your all grieve for Colin.
