A kind soul departed this temporal life much too soon. Colleen fought a courageous battle with a merciless disease which robbed her of every part of her life until she could breathe no more.
She is my Stepmom, she is a kindhearted giving person and she loved my Dad which is her soulmate. They loved each other and were 100% devoted to each other. To all the cookies baked, meals prepared and the hospitality you showed over the years, thank you Colleen. Colleen is absent from this temporal life and is present with her heavenly Father. She can breath, talk and walk. She is 100% healed in her eternal life. May God give her husband, my Dad strength as he continues in his temporal life.
