Last night my Papap, Wayne Collins went home to Heaven. After a courageous battle with Cancer he is now at peace. Although we knew this day was coming, nothing prepares you for the heartbreak of hearing those words. He spent 82 years teaching all of us how to laugh, how to work hard and how to give one hell of a fight but what we didn’t learn is how to live without him. Sometimes one lifetime isn’t enough. Today (June 26) is my Nana’s Birthday, his lovely wife Donna Collins. We know he had to make it Home in time to spend it in Heaven with her. They are both now together, watching a game show and reminiscing on the life and love they created. I will always remember my Papap, with his countless jokes, his stories, his famous saying “Don’t start no stuff, there won’t be none”, his love of westerns, his sweet tooth, the way he would sleep with his hands clasped on his belly, how his hair was always combed and looking his absolute best. He always gave, more than what he had and wanted nothing in return. He was a man like no other
