I don't really have a memory.. I just wanted to say thank you to Colette for being there for my 3 girls ,she was like their second mother! We didn't have a great home life. I was glad they could get into church to take them away from that. They loved her so much and I loved her for Everything she did for them .. Rest Easy Collette ❤️

Hey Sis, I will always remember all of our fun times going roller skating. And the time we walked all across town to get money from your mom to go skating. And riding on the back of my dad's truck in the winter to go see Richie Thomas's baby. The way singing Paula Abdul songs. And you was right by my side through my hard time when I needed you the most. I love you sis! Have fun with your dad, and I know you will watch over your boys and grand babies. I LOVE YOU!❤

Colette was always a big supporter for me and absolutely loved me for me. She would always check up on everyone and make sure everyone was in a good place. When i told her that I was gay she absolutely said it was okay and that she’s here no matter what. Always told me to be the person I wanted to be and if people do not accept they are not worth the time. I love you Aunt Colette I will always miss your hugs until I get one again.

From the first day I meet Colette we were friends. I watched her grow in the Lord. I was there the day she accepted the Lord as her Savior. What a glorious day. I know my friend is in Heaven today sitting and talking to the Father. Colette my friend save us a place and know you will be missed but never forgotten. Watch over us all.
