I am so sorry to hear about Colleen’s passing. She was such a sweet woman. Although I haven’t spoken to Colleen in years, she was an important person in my life, growing up. I remember her laugh. ❤️❤️❤️ She lived her life with such joy and so loved her children. She was so proud of them. Rest in peace Colleen. You will always have a special place in my heart! Donna, Kathy and George....I am sending you my hugs and my prayers.
