Every interaction we had with Mr. Hawkins was pleasant and he made everyone smile to see him. He always had a smile for everyone. He was kind and friendly and we enjoyed seeing him at the laundromat.

I did not have the opportunity to get to know Colin very well but the ladies at TNT Cleaners were very sad to hear of his passing. God bless Judi and may her memories always warm her heart knowing they were both blessed to have each other.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Colin, you'll be greatly missed. As a transplant myself, you made my adaptation to Lafayette easier and enjoyable. "Rest in peace" is a traditional wish, but I know that as dynamic and restless as you were in life, somewhere, you'll be always tinkering with something and make it better. I wish you joy in your next endeavors.
