|Let the memory of Jim be with us forever|
"I came to know Dr.Jim as teacher of the Christian counseling class in ECC, AD. Though it was a brief period, he left few long lasting inspirations- His availability amidst fragile health, basing his subject completely on Scripture, the way he would link Gods word to every principle. The love for his patients and the ways in which his workplace became his mission field. God bless the family"
"Dr. Jim ---- We dared each other! Against the judgement of your better half, we went carpet shopping across the pond. I'll remember you all my days. I will remember your faithfulness to your creator, you love of your spouse, and your compassion for all human kind. Knowing you was a blessing, and an inspiration."
"How to remember a friend, a guide, a counselor, a therapist that was so much to me. I met Dr. Collins at a very difficult threshold in my life upon moving to the UAE and also going through some personal changes. He was the person who held the light for me along the way.
I spoke to him just a few weeks before his passing, I feel he was an Angel sent to me when I needed one so much."
"Dr Jim was an angel among us. His compassion, caring, support, belief and understanding of the pain of others helped so many to heal, including me. I am so blessed to have known him. Abu Dhabi grieves the loss of a remarkable man.
Nancy, May you and family be comforted knowing that Jim touched so many and enriched their paths."
"Earth has given up one of her best, to make heaven with the Father an even greater place! Gil and I were blessed to know and receive the friendship and hospitality Jim and Nancy offered to us. Thank you and rest in peace, Jim, until we meet again."
"Dr.. Jim was a dear and close friend. There were so many times we would chat over lunch or drop in to say hello. He was a valued friend, coworker with the Family Ministries at ECC, and we talked over many 'things' about life and work. Thank you Nancy for your generous and loving role in our friendship. I miss you both, but will for sure be with you eternally!"
"Jim was a dear friend and counselor. I was blessed to have known him He had a profound impact on my life and that of my family. He will be very much missed. My prayers are with Nancy and his family. May you find peace."
"This talented man was the most critical human factor in our lives, period. He helped us escape the bondage of past abuse and pain and enabled us to lead healthy lives with love, hope, faith, and endurance in the face of many challenges of all kinds that we would never have survived without his guidance. You will indeed be forever missed. Rest with Christ you faithful servant. My friend."
"Dr. Jim, was at one time my very best friend. He was the only person who helped me when I really needed help. I shall have Jim in my heart and mind forever. My wish is for his family to be comforted in this time of loss. Truly a man."
"I read once that what matters most to a person when they leave this world is that they know they were loved. Though I am saddened by our loss of Dr. Jim, the most patient and loving of men, it is comforting to me to know that he is and shall always be loved by many, including me."
"I co-taught the counseling class with Dr. Jim in Fall 2011 and also corresponded during Spring 2012 when the class continued in his absence. Jim was a patient, affable, wise counselor who practiced his faith in the giving sessions he had with folks. I benefited by his openness and prayers while together we helped build a closing piece for him in Abu Dhabi. May the Lord bless his family."
"Dr Jim a good mentor ,He invited ed me in his house some years ago in Abu Dhabi and ,he gave me fatherly counseling ,May almighty God comfort your family and friends to the glory of His name Amen.Goodbye."
"Dr. Jim became my father in the faith during one of the counseling classes he taught her at ECC in Abu Dhabi, he welcomed me into his heart and his life, Dr.jIM was a mighty man of faith and power, he taught not only from the bible or tex book, he taught us by the way he lived his life and loved his wife. May God comfort you family and friends until you see him again in heaven."
