I so enjoyed visiting Lillian and hearing Collins family stories.  She always shared her memory of my mom coming to her house when Perry passed away. She always told me she said to mom, "I knew you would come!"  Perhaps mom met her at heaven's gate and said the same to her.  God blessed her with longevity beyond anyone else in the clan, to date, as far as I know.  May God bless the family and she will be missed by many.  Love from Stuart & Derenda

Grandma Thomas was so loving and welcoming. Memories of the best biscuits and chicken & dumplings ever. Her caramel candy was unmatched! Great memories of such a great lady. Our lives were touched by her love and she certainly lives on in all of her family.
