  2. On behalf of the Chadwick and Robinson families we would like to express our deepest sympothy to the Collins family. Harvey was a dear friend and we are happy that we had the opportunity to know him. As neighbors on the southside of town we were able to taste his home cooked racoon as well as soft shelled turtle. What a character he was and we will dearly miss him.

  3. We would also like to express our deepest sympathy to the Collins Family. I admired Uncle Harvey’s facination with wildlife and his stories of how he caught them and how some of the tasted. Once he tried to trap a chicken snake for me but it escaped. Uncle Harvey will be missed. Diane Fontelroy and Family

  4. I would like to offer my condolences from the landry’s and the Penton’s uncle harvey will surely be missed by all. love always Kelvin Landry SR.

  5. We are saddened to hear of Mr. Collins passing and wish to offer all of you our sincerest condolences in this time of saddness. I and my sisters Shirley, Carole, Susie, and June grew up next door to the Collins family with our father, Wilson (Jack) Jackson, on Dumoulin Ave. We remember the kindness Mr. Collins and his family showed us as children and the friendship which he and our father shared. He always had a smile, a friendly word, and took the time to share them with us. We will always remember him this way and consider ourselves lucky to have known him. Sincerely, Bubba Jackson

  6. I would like to share my deepest sympathies with the Wash and Collins families. Every time I saw Mr. Collins he was always laughing, had a smile on his face and a funny story or joke to tell. He loved to hunt and would eat just about anything. He was also very willing to share his catch whether he thought you were a taker or not. When August, who is like a sister, married into our family, he was always very respectful of our family and Kenneth and Augusta’s union. You could tell that he cherished Augusta, Ken, his grand and great grand children. He will definitely be missed by us all.

  7. It is with much love and regret that we send our condolences to the Collins and Wash families. I am so very sad that Mr. Harvey will no longer be among us to spread his unique brand of humor, charm, good cheer, and cuisine. Mr. Harvey had a way of making you feel special and always had a story to tell. His advice was always given and well taken. His unmistakable laugh, smile, and wink could bring warmth to any heart. We have shared many wonderful times and the memories will always be cherished. I am blessed to have been able to know him. Mr. Harvey the “Grey Goose” and I will definitely miss you! Till we meet again! Sincerely, Michelle Daniel, Brent, Coleman, & Andrea “Little Bit”

  10. My grandfather: Mr. Cowboy – Granddaddy was a man who thoroughly enjoyed life to the fullest. Some of my earliest memories with my grandfather was being introduced to his food “delicacies” at a young age. He would convince me to eat frog legs by calling them “water chicken.” I can’t think of anything he didn’t eat. I remember on most occasions when my family would travel to SA from Houston, the first place we would stop is Granddaddy’s house to relax and have that great home cooked breakfast – and maybe some homemade wine or moonshine as a parting gift to take home. I always enjoyed his mini farm of rabbits, birds and whatever else he had out back. He loved his animals and dogs. Even though he would talk about you if you needed some talking to, he was so compassionate and loving. He especially loved his daughter. I would like to thank my mom for being so loving, caring, selfless, and strong in taking care of my granddaddy until his last breath. You were definitely a soldier, and he was a fighter until the end. He was extremely lucky to have a daughter like you. I love you. I will always cherish the memories I have of Granddaddy. He was a character and will definitely be missed by all.

  11. Augusta & Family, my prays are with you during this trying time. Uncle Harvey was Uncle Harvey. There was no one like him; He was a special man. You have our sympathy, and our prays. We Love You.

  12. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Our prayers go out to all of you in this time of grief. We don’t get to make it out to SA very often these days…it’s been a long time since I have seen Uncle Harvey. Even though we are far, our prayers and thoughts are close by. I’m Richard Glasco’s daughter in New York. My family here is my daughter Sonia and my husband Abdoul. Sincerely, Cassandra
