  1. Colleen and family…: I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had words that could ease your grief and pain, but I don’t. I only share it with you! You are in my thoughts and prayers now and for the days/months to come as you traverse this path of grief…please know if you ever need to talk or just someone to listen I am available.

  2. Colleen, words can not express how deeply sorry I am. This woman had a magic about her that I’ll keep in my heart and memories forever. I’m thinking of all of you.

  3. Colleen and Family. I am so very sorry for your loss. I was lucky enough to spend quality time with your mom in the years after she moved to Loganville and before I moved to North Carolina last year. She was a good person, a good friend, and had a wonderful heart. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Shelly Henderson
