WWII Veteran, Battle of the Bulge survivor and good friend of the Collings Foundation, Dr. John McAuliffe has passed away. When we think of what is good, kind, thoughtful and hard working, we think of John. In his obituary his family wrote: "In lieu of flowers, as a tribute to John's goodness, his family suggests that you take someone you love to lunch or dinner and let them know that you love them." (that is just the way John was) In honor of John, we suggest you do that. ...

Beautiful snowy morning here at the Foundation. ...
