Chuck, Chip, and Family, We were so sorry to hear about Mr. Colin. He was a dear friend of my Dad's Gary Allen of Union Point. I remember the day that my dad was buried, I looked up and saw Mr. Colin there. He looked weak but he was there. My Dad really enjoyed the wonderful years of hunting with all of you. Just know that they are together again, talking about those wonderful times you'll had together. I know how you are feeling right now, just trust in God, and he will help you through this difficult time. Our entire family was so sorry to hear of your loss. Just know you are in our thoughts and prayers. The Vaughn and Allen Family
