My Father-In-Law Died Today

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My Father-In-Law (David Collins)  Died today at the age of 92.  He taught me to re-load and

made me a better hunter and shooter.  He was my Father-In-Law for almost 48 years and I

always called him "Dad".  I will miss him more than I can express.  He was a WW 2 Infantry

Veteran.   RIP DAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again to all that have responded and PM'ed.  We had his Celebration of Life today.

It was cool to have the local VFW Honor Guard to do the 21 Gun Salute and play Taps on

a horn instead of a recording.  They gave us the fired brass to give to family members and

put 3 of them in his Flag..............................

I'm sorry for your loss.

I too just went to a funeral where they had a bugler play taps for an inside service.  It was heart moving hearing a live version.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss.
