I was shocked and saddened to learn of Collins passing, it was a joy to call into him on a Friday afternoon, he loved to have the chat, and was a great man for the banter, he had such a great sense of humour, and would always leave the house laughing, what a character, it was an absolute pleasure to have known him, he was a pure gentleman. My heartfelt condolences to Colins brothers David and Patrick, his sisters in law, and extended familly, also to mary,, Colin will be sorely missed by all who knew him, thinking of you all at this very sad time
