    I am so sorry to hear of Colleen’s passing. I went to junior high and high school with Colleen and reconnected with her years later. She kept me informed of the welfare an older friend we had in common. Colleen was a very special person. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Colleen was a great friend in high school. She was a very good person and loved life. Colleen would tease me all the time about skipping school and how I was always in trouble. She will be missed by many. My prayers are with you at this time of great lose. May the Lord keep you in His care.
