Quinn Orion Collings Quinn was born the day after Valentine's on February 15, 2015 and his spirit went to Jesus on Resurrection Sunday, April 16th, 2017. He was taken off life support the following day. Quinn lived with his mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa in their family home down Phillip Richardson Rd, named after Quinn's great grandpa, in Holden, Louisiana. He lived a life of love and appreciation for everyone, being quick to give a wave and a smile that said 'we're friends now.' He filled places with dance and imagination and joy in making others as free as he could be. He is a child of God, a light here and one in heaven. He will be missed dearly until his loved ones follow him home. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Ceremony in the chapel of Harry McKneely & Son Funeral Home, 2000 N.
