Dear Aunt Iris. Barbara, Ronnie, Larry and family. How sad we are to here of uncle Marty’s passing. We are so very grateful for the numerous memories we have sharing holidays, mitzvahs and special occasions together over the years. We always relished every bite of every meal. And now having become the cook in our family, I appreciate even more the love and labor that went into those wonderful lunches and dinners. Some of those recipes still show up on our table. Being at your home was like auditing an entire semester at a fine liberal arts college. Your slideshows showed us more of the world than I think Ill ever see. Your knowledge of art, history, science and politics that you so graciously shared with us, like Uncle Marty, will never be forgotten.

Lori and I send our heartfelt condolences to the entire Collins family and extended relatives. Uncle Marty had 100 wonderful years of life filled with lots of family, travels, and a successful business.
