My neighbor runs GrassRoots Lawn Service. He is a young man with a young family, surrounded on three sides by old people. When he saw me struggling to cut back my crepe myrtles and the fellow across the street teetering on a ladder trimming his tree, he sent his crew to do the work for us. At no charge, with nothing expected in return. Then, he did it again the next year. What an astonishing and generous act of kindness.

Our 12 year old son courageously battled a cancerous brain tumor, while faithfully trusting God for each day. During Collins' 10 month journey we were blessed with many random acts of kindness. There are two that stand out for us. 1. Collins insisted on going to school even if we had to check him out that morning to go to get intravenous chemo, our day was long. We would make it back to Canton from Egleston barely in time to get Collins some dinner and have to allow at least an hour from eating so they he could go home and take 7 chemo pills before bed, so I phoned my husband and son to meet me and Collins at Pizza Hut so we could get a quick dinner. We practically had the restaurant to ourselves only a couple of other people were there and the staff. We finished up and asked for the check but the waitress said it was already taken care of. What a blessing! And we have no idea who blessed us.

con'tfrom above from Collins Dixon's Family 2. Our precious Collins was called home to be with Jesus on 1/14/2012. Heartbroken we tried to plan his service. Everyone knew of Collins' love for the Georgia BullDogs the wonderful staff at Sosebee funeral home had almost everything to offer us that they knew would say "Collins". So we make it through the service and head to the cemetery and the most beautiful Georgia Bulldog vault in black granite with Collins' name engraved on it was there for Collins. It was so perfect and we have no idea who made this possible the bill was Paid in Full. We are so grateful and blessed to live in this community that embraced us with compassion and truly selfless giving. The Collins Dixon Family
