“Colin was a wonderful house guest.He was very easy to get along with and a wonderful story teller. He has had a really interesting life and he was happy to share his experiences with us while he stayed in the area. I strongly recommend anyone along his route that has the chance to give Colin a place to stay and a warm meal. They will be left with the feeling of having met a really great and inspiring human being.  He was a pleasure we will not soon forget.”

--Linda van der Grinten, Southern Tier Hospice, Corning, New York
