Thank you with all my heart to everyone who has shown support and kind words whether in person or online regarding the passing of Dwayne Rollins Sr. I will be sending out thank you cards for those of you who left addresses, phone calls for those who have left numbers etc.

During the heartbreaking loss of Dad, there has also been lots of love shared, and healing conversations. Here is to a positive next chapter filled with strength and love. Once COVID-19 is subdued or out of the picture or whatever, I plan to have another round to tribute dad, whether it be a bbq at dad’s shop, or some sort of gathering where we can do it safely. My heart goes out to everyone who shares this feeling of loss, and I’m grateful that he put his trust in me to do right by his memory and his family that he loves so dearly ❤️

So sorry for your loss. "Red" was no doubt the happiest person i ever knew (met him back in the 70's), always smiling & laughing... Cant imagine much had changed over the years. I know he'll be missed.

This was the last photo I sent to Dad. I was in D.C. for work, and knowing how proud he was to be a Marine, I made sure to see the monument up close and to take a photo for him ❤️
