My wife and I met Colin in an early time in our relationship, when we were still figuring out IF we were going to work out and then HOW. What would be our values? Who did we want to be together?
We were lucky to see Colin regularly in that time and though he may not have known it, he helped us center on what we love about people as a way to get right on the other stuff.
He taught us that if you smile, welcome people warmly into a space, and love them for who and what they are while they're there, the rest of it will take care of itself.
We are so crushed for Colin's family and friends, and hope only that you know that we cherish our memories with him. We are forever better people because of Colin.

To Colin's Family,
I do not believe I have had the chance to meet you in person. (Janis, I might have met you briefly at Tavern and Grocery in 2017.)
I wish to share my condolences and to share in this time of grief for your son.
Over the last 4 years, I was able to become quite close to Colin. We worked together in 2017 and became good friends. From 2018-2020, I was out of the country and still we were able to catch up nearly every month. Then last June Colin met my fiancé and I asked him to be a groomsman at our wedding. I spoke with him often about his life and shared mine with him. Through my relationship with him, I was able to grow and was made into a better man.
He was a wonderful human being.
I last saw him in April. We drove around downtown and had dinner at Brasserie Saison. It was wonderful. We shared a few tears and many laughs. A few weeks ago, we spoke about positive change and hope for the the future. We had even started a little book club.
We last spoke May 14 and the last words I said to your son were, "Well, I gotta run. Love you brother, peace." I did and I do love your son as a brother. He helped me more than I can express and more than I could every repay. His life was tragically short yet the love he shared to those he met will be carried in their lives and memories of him.
I love you brother, may you have found peace.

Dear Deb and Janis, I just wanted to say that I am incredibly sad to hear the news of Colin . I remember playing with him on visits to duke years ago. Such a challenging time for all of you. Best wishes Helen Alexander
