Default loved ones lost in 2009

MY father has done way too much to say it all in one post.

My brother and sister took my dad in to be checked because he was getiing worse in health and would not admit it. HE NEVER CAME HOME!!!.Yet he did go home to be with God.

I think we are all still not over the fact that we were only trying to help.

I could post a thought daily for the next ten years and not cover all the fishing things we did together. MY dad is Jerry Collins, He began Collins Craft boats which we remember him for but regret not continuing the business.

I now own his boat: a boat he built, a 30 year old Collins Craft.

SEnd me pictures of your Collins Craft, and love your dad for all your worth.

My dad bought a new Collins Craft from Hess Marine in 1978....a 14 footer with a 20 merc. and we fished out of it for 10 years before he traded it on a larger boat. The first day out in the new boat we launch at Hurst Hammock and ran north and hit what we thought was a gator just under the surface. It threw me in the floor of the boat and my dad went out the back but was able to hang onto the transom as the boat made circles. Whatever it was we hit pitched the boat into a hard turn and out the back went dad. I don't know how the prop did'nt eat his ass up but he was able to kill the engine. We were shook up from the event but we continued onto our fishing spot and caught a nice mess of shellcrackers. I could not begin to tell you how many fish we pulled over the side of that old boat. That was the first brand new boat my dad owned......great memories!! I still have my dad and we fish together often.

May god bless you and your family....very sorry for your loss

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">My dad was actually on the road from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">St Petersburg</st1lace></st1:City> with my mom in December 08 to visit me when he suffered a major heart attack in the car. Luckily he wasn?t driving but he never did recover and passed away. It haunted me for quite some that there were a lot of things I wish I had said to him but never did. I won?t ever make that mistake again. You think your loved ones are invincible and will always be around but they can be gone in an instance. Don?t make the mistake I did. Family is everything!!!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
