My condolences goes out to Annie Belle Collins, Kay Frances Collins Williams, Cleveland Collins, Vickie Collins-Best and the entire family of the late James Lee Collins Pinetops, NC.
I have been knowing Deacon Collins nearly all of my life. I grew up across the road from him. I began preparing his garden when I was around 9 or 10 years old. I used to play basketball in his yard. I used to serve in the Bynum Mill Road Community Club with him. I used to serve on the Pinetops Community Center Board with him. I visited Pines Chapel where he was a deacon over the years. I have never seen Deacon Collins get mad or act a fool in all of my days. He was always kind and caring. When good men like this expire it hurts because he and some of the other men in the community Bynum Mill Road always encourage me and today I am who I am.
