  19. Colleen lived her life exactly the way all of us should. She loved unconditionally and her children and God were everything to her.
    I can still remember walking the tracks to ridgetown for icecream. There was nothing you could not share with coleen she never judged or gossiped but we sure did laugh a lot.
    Lessons from her life should be to never give up hope , never stop believing and to love with all your heart and soul. My heart is breaking she was a much better friend to me than i was to her. But i can hear her now saying becky enough of the dram lets go get some ice cream.
    We will see her again forever and always she will remain in my heart.
