    Anderson and his family were neighbors of ours at Hamilton, MS. They were great people and the best of neighbors. He will be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in eternal peace.

    Two O’clock came and went and my phone didn’t ring today, “Hey, hey, how are you doing today, just calling to see what you are up to”, that is how our conversations would start off. Then Uncle Anderson would get into a story about how life was back on the farm when they were kids, or what all he did on the USS Hatfield during WWII, or giving me much needed advise on gardening. I already miss our phone calls and visits with each other, because if he didn’t call me I was for sure going to call him to see how he was doing during the day. He made my days more pleasant, the last things we said to each other was I love you.

    I am sorry for the loss of Mr. Collins. He lived a long life but that does not stop us from missing him. God has promised to give us comfort at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. I hope these words give you comfort and hope.
