Your next door neighbor and friend of you and Mike for all those school years echoes that sentiment of all Reagan classmates in your loss. May peace and solace comfort you in this trying time.

Mike and Becky,

Noreen and I are so sorry for your loss of Collin, especially at such a young age. We read the Obituary and saw the beautiful video of his life showing what a full and loving life he had -- what a great son you were blessed with.

You are in our thoughts and prayers and God bless Collin and your family,

Chuck and Noreen
