GUEST,Black belt caterpillar wrestler Obit: Johnny Collins (6 July 2009) (419* d) RE: Obit: JOHNNY COLLINS 06 Jul 09

He was one of the most respected singers that I have had the good fortune to know. So often the term "respected" is used in this sort of circumstances but here I think that I use it in it's most intense measure. I counted him as a friend although only seeing him once or twice a year for a few minutes at a time, and so I expect did many others. He was most encouraging to me when I started out in the folk world.

I can only say that we have been blessed to have him for so long in view of his earlier heart attack some years ago when I was shocked at the possibility that his perfoming was at an end, but he returned to us, however we wish it could have been for longer.

My sympathy to Joyce and all the family.
