Colleen has been a friend of mine since central grammar school. We stayed friends throughout our adult life. I will miss her very much. We just were able to hang out together this April in Florida. Colleen made it to our house to visit. We moved to Port Charlotte last year. When I look around my house I have so many things that remind me of Colleen. The presents we've exchanged throughout the years are precious and will remind me of her forever. Colleen is a great person and her spirit will live on in our hearts and memory throughout our lives. I feel privileged to have been a close friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family for their sad loss.
